I like the whole mobile ability of Canvas. Especially as an admin now that we can act as a user in the app. It provides many helpful ways for students to learn especially on the go. Being able to review assignments, watch lectures any time they want, check their grades and course progress. Keeping them engaged while on a mobile device can be tough especially when there are many distractions like Facebook, twitter, cat videos, etc. Hopefully that canvas icon will pop out at them and encourage them to keep at it.
There are limitations of mobile devices though. I would hate to try to write a paper on a small screen. Or look at my course on a small screen.
what limitation have you found in mobile devices that steer students away from using their mobile device or what do students want to do on their mobile device that they can't?
