For the past month or so, I have been developing this Amazon Alexa to interface with Canvas API.  The app can retrieve grading, assignment and announcement information from a student perspective.  Please see the video below.  The amazon echo device is only $40 which is affordable to students.  However I think the real potential of this is from school/teacher/administrative and also the observer perspective.  Anyone has any ideas on how to make it more useful?
