How do I edit my user name in the Teacher app on my Android device?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I edit my user name in the Teacher app on my Android device?

If your institution allows you to edit your user name, you can edit it in the app. This is the name that users see in the app.

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

Notes:

  • Changing your user name in the app will also change your user name in your browser version of Canvas.
  • If you cannot change your user name, your institution has restricted this feature.
