Did you know that discussions are the most utilized tool in Canvas mobile apps? This course is an exclusive live event where learners will fully experience the power of conversation while 'on-the-go'. Come be a part of the conversation about classroom conversations.


Course will be facilitated 100% via the Canvas mobile app for iOS and Android.

(Technically you could participate in the course via web - but that wouldn't be as fun.)


NOTE: This course is hosted on our Canvas Community instance of Canvas ( If you do not have a user account in that instance, you will be prompted to create one when you enroll.



We structured this experience to be a series of hands-on activities using discussions in the Canvas Mobile App. (NOTE: This course is not about best practices in designing/facilitating discussions on a mobile device, but about the mobile experience.)


Participants who complete this course will gain a sense of how discussions translate in mobile during the following scenarios:


  • Engaging in traditional and threaded conversations
  • Documenting live events
  • Offering peer-to-peer feedback
  • Creating media-based conversations (audio, video, image)
  • Contributing to a graded discussion with rubrics


Additional Resources

The Canvas Mobile Guides are a great resource for how to use the Canvas mobile apps. Please be familiar with the guides related to viewing, creating, replying to a discussion on your respective devices.
