How do I view the course navigation links for a course 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".

The Attendance tool allows teachers to use their mobile device to take roll call for a course and has been developed specifically for the Teacher app. All other external tools will display the same functionality as seen when used in a web browser.

Note: The external apps displayed in the Teacher app will vary based on the external apps enabled for your institution or course. For assistance with external apps, contact your Canvas administrator.
