How do I view context cards in the Teacher app on my iOS device?

In Canvas Teacher, you can open context cards to view information specific to students and other users in a course. Context cards can be opened by tapping a user's name from the People page, Submissions list, SpeedGrader, SpeedGrader comments, inbox messages, announcement replies, and discussion replies. This lesson explains how to open context cards from the People page.
