What is Canvas for Elementary?

Canvas for Elementary is a Canvas setting that displays a simplified interface and experience designed for young learners.

The Canvas for Elementary setting can be enabled at a school's account or sub-account level. When enabled, the Canvas for Elementary interface displays to all users enrolled in at least one active subject within the account or sub-account.

When enabled, users enrolled in Canvas for Elementary subjects can view a homeroom which displays the user's subjects and information or resources that apply to all of their subjects. Within an individual subject, a user can view upcoming tasks and information or resources that apply to that subject.

What is the Homeroom?

Within the homeroom, users can view homeroom announcements [1], their active subjects [2], and important dates [3].
