So is there going to be a solution to how embedded LTI tools act in the mobile app?  Specifically LTI video tools embedded into a Canvas page require the end user to click a button called "Launch External Tool."  Once you click that, the video (Kaltura, Canvas Studio) only plays in portrait mode. This really interrupts the experience.  It doesn't… (Show more)

Hey! I was wondering if anyone knew of a way to make a particular link open in the devices default browser instead of within the Canvas App? I have a special use case where I have something that students interact with, that doesn't work in the app, but does work in the mobile browser.

Upon investigating a grade dispute from a student, I found a major flaw in the Canvas Student App. The student took two screenshots of their grades in the Student app- one after completing their final exam and one near the last day of the semester. In the first screenshot, the student has a grade of 70%. In both screenshots, all of the assignments… (Show more)

Click to view contentHey Mobile People! I'm not sure if everyone's been following the saga of the new Grade Posting Policy ( Post Policy Updates Feedback for your reading pleasure) or not, but I've also found an issue that I think would be best addressed in this space. When I am in the Teacher App it says that my students' grades are muted even though I haven't set a… (Show more)
