In this update, the Canvas Student app supports sending mobile page views to Canvas, inserting an image in the Rich Content Editor by taking a photo or selecting an image from your device, and deleting other users’ comments and annotations in DocViewer.
Download the Canvas Student in the Play Store. Version 6.3 requires Android 5.0 or later.
Rich Content Editor
Device Image Uploads
The Rich Content Editor supports inserting an image by taking a photo or selecting an image from your device. These options replace inserting an image by pasting a link.
Mobile Page Views
The Student app supports reporting mobile page views to Canvas. Canvas admins can track mobile page views in the Page Views section of a student’s User Details page. Each page view in the Student app is assigned a URL that corresponds to a page in the web view of Canvas.
Mobile page views are only sent to Canvas from the Student app when a student leaves, or backgrounds, the app.
Annotation Deletion from Other Users
DocViewer supports deleting annotations and comments made by other users. In order to delete an annotation or comment, a user must have the appropriate permissions.
