"School Code" for "Free for Teachers" on phone app

Jump to solution

I am using Free for Teachers.  Some of my students try to register and join my class using the phone app.  They get stuck when they are asked to enter a school code.  I don't have a school code. What are they supposed to enter when we're using a Free for Teachers account?  The class code?

Anytime I've helped a student with the phone app, when they get to the school, we just start typing in the free for canvas and it usually shows up in a dropdown list.  We then click on that and we are good to go.

If students also have a Canvas on a computer, they can go to their account settings and there is a QR code that is unique to them and their class.  They can use their phone to scan the QR code and get to their Canvas course.

The app needs to be "free canvas accounts" when asked for the school.

Thanks! Is that case sensitive?
