How do I add Canvas to a new device?
Hi Jen Brant , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
Canvas is a cloud-based platform, but it is easiest to think of it as "on the internet" just like Facebook or Snapchat. This mean you can access it through a web browser from any where, and on any device that can connect to the internet.
There is a very slim chance that your school is self-hosting Canvas on a local school server, but I suspect that most, if not all, of those are also web-based.
If you have been accessing Canvas from your school on one of their computers, then note the URL address of their Canvas account. Below is a screenshot of our school's Canvas URL.
Your own school's URL would look something like https://YOURSCHOOL.instructure.com
Copy your school's Canvas address into the address line of the browser you use on your laptop, then save it as a bookmark.
I hope this is helpful,
