How do I view Discussions in the Student app on my iOS device?

The Canvas Student app helps you keep track of all course discussions. You can also view newly created discussions or changes to discussions in the Notifications tab.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.

Notes:

  • The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If Discussions is not available in Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
  • Viewing rubrics in graded discussions is not supported in the app.
