I have three kids in the same district, but I can't see any way to view information for only one child at a time. I can't even see which child any one course is for. Seems like it's missing some pretty basic I just missing something?

There is a way to see which student is assigned which course as an Observer. On the dashboard, you should be able to see their name right on the card. If not, you can change the nickname! You could also color-code the courses by the student. How do I view my favorite courses in the Card View.

It sounds like Canvas Parent would be a great solution for you! It's a free app available for both iOS and Android devices. You can view one student at a time and set custom alerts. You use the same log-in information you already have, too.

How do I view a QR code to log in to the Canvas mobile apps as an observer? 

What is the Canvas Parent app? 

How do I set alerts for a student in the Canvas Parent app?


If you have any follow-up questions, please reply. I'd be happy to collaborate. 🙂
