In this update, the Canvas Student app supports viewing Conferences, searching files, and viewing custom help links. The To-Do List supports practice quizzes and ungraded surveys.
Download the Canvas Student in the Play Store. Version 6.4 requires Android 5.0 or later.
The Student app supports opening Conferences in a web view. The BigBlueButton mobile interface is displayed after joining a live conference. Previously, the BigBlueButton mobile interface could only be accessed using a mobile browser.
Course Files and User Files support searching files. Search results require at least three characters for matching files to display. Search results do not include file folders.
Custom Help Links
The Settings menu displays custom help links. Previously, the Student app would only display an account’s default help links. Custom help links cannot be managed from a mobile app and must be set in Account Settings.
