Hi  @cmumpower ‌ -

The best place to do this is through the browser. Once you have your student's pairing code, sign-in to your account. Then, click Account, then Settings, then Observing. On this screen, you should see a +Student button. Just above that button, enter your student's pairing code. After your account is linked to theirs, all of your students should be listed on the screen.

This connection will work anywhere you sign-in to Canvas - web or Canvas Parent!

Thank you for your response to my question. That is the problem I'm having .... getting the students pairing code. Do you have to obtain that from the school? Or can you get it on the canvas website?

Hi Cam - Students can create the code, but your students' teachers can also create the pairing code and share them with you.

Ok thank you. I've asked the teachers for a code. How can the student do it!?

How do I generate a pairing code for an observer as a student?

Thank you we will try that
