How do I use Student View in the Canvas Teacher app on my iOS device?

As an instructor, you can use Student View in the Canvas Teacher app on your iOS device. Accessing Student View opens the Canvas Student app and displays the Test Student icon at the bottom of the window. The mobile app student view matches the same restrictions for the Test Student in Canvas web. However, the Test Student cannot be reset in the app.

Note: When accessing Student View, if you do not have the Student app installed on your device, you are first directed to the App Store to download the Canvas Student app.
