How do I view and edit the Syllabus in the Teacher app on my iOS device?

If you are using a syllabus in your course, Canvas lets you access the Syllabus page and course summary list from the Teacher app. You can also choose to disable the Course Summary.

The Course Summary is enabled by default. It is automatically generated based on assignments and events within a course. Items within the Course Summary can only be changed by editing or deleting the assignments or events. All assignments (unpublished and published) are listed in the syllabus for instructors.

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