Student orientations to Canvas & mobile phone settings

Are there any very simple examples of a student overview orientation guide on how to use canvas. We are a small training organisation and don't need anything overly complicated. Also any guidelines on the best way for use to set up our orientation.

Interested to know if student mobile canvas app can be viewed in landscape mode.

Regards

Peter

Hi peter@petertranter.com 

Best bet is to always check out the Guides in this community, there is some great stuff in there. But................. here are some that might meet your needs.

  • a video introduction
  • video

The reality is that from the student perspective, Canvas is incredibly easy to use. It was always intended to be so. Our students have mush less trouble than our teachers.

I hope this is helpful,

Kelley

peter@petertranter.com‌, 

The Canvas apps do not support landscape outside of viewing video. This has been voted on a few times in the community, but the feature hasn't been added:

Hi Ryan.Seilhamer@ucf.edu

Perhaps I'm missing something or maybe it's different on Android, but I can turn my phone sideways and use it landscape mode in the Canvas Student App. (I also use iOS app on my tablet in landscape with no problem, but tablet has bigger screen.)
