Canvas Mobile App

I'm just wondering if anyone has made any kind of case study/studies on the use of the Canvas mobile app, for both students and staff and are willing to share?

At this moment in time, we don't officially support the staff and student mobile apps, and are currently looking at some of the changes we'll need to make to our courses to make the mobile experience as fluent as possible. 

Any information or experiences would be greatly appreciated!

Community Team, for starters, here are the results of a comprehensive survey done by a large university: 

If you haven't yet joined the Canvas Mobile Users Group‌, I suggest you do! You can easily join by navigating to the group home page and selecting Join Group from the Actions dropdown at the upper right of the page. I've already shared this discussion with the group, so no need to re-post: members of the group will see it and their replies will appear here in this thread.

Thanks for the question. I echo Stefanie in checking out our UCF Canvas Mobile App Survey. We have been running Canvas Mobile app surveys since 2014 and our students, like most schools, see the app very favorably. With the addition of the Teacher app, there is a lot of functionality overlap with the web (although not 1:1). 

You can also get some information about Canvas Mobile apps from our recent InstructureCon presentation:
