Can you be logged in to two devices simultaneously?
There is no setting in Canvas that would end a users session on 1 device if they log into another device. For 2019/Internet/Student scenarios, they will all log in from the most appropriate device for where they are. That means in the car on the way home, at home, and quite often logged in to their laptop and mobile phones at the same time. You would most likely severely limit normal use by implementing anything that logs a user out of all other devices when logging in.
An option would be trying to develop some fraud evaluation with Canvas Data and/or Live Events (RAW with ClientIP). I've done this to detect and monitor when students share their login info and the student logs in from geographically impossible distances or even detect multiple students logging in from the same location (study groups allowed). Each of these scenarios requires human eyes to evaluate and investigate, not just immediately make claims about academic integrity. Obviously blended classrooms are going trigger false positives as will libraries.
Yes. I regularly log in with multiple browsers and I have an iPad session with the App that I can run while I'm logged into a browser as well.
I'm talking about multiple devices, not browsers.
Hi Joanna Brailer
Are you talking about browser access or app access. Doesn't really matter, because I believe this is possible in both modes. I routinely have dual logins.
I'm talking about any logins. We have people other than students logging in with student credentials and I'm wondering how we can prevent this from happening.
That seems like an Acceptable Use Policy issue, your institution should not allow sharing of credentials. Parents can use Observer accounts to access their childs Canvas account if you're K12.
Or are you generating generic student accounts that are published somewhere?
We don't, but is there any setting to make sure it doesn't?
I agree, Robert Carroll , this has nothing to do with multiple device login, and everything to do with security policy enforcement.
Students can still steal or borrow credentials, even in a single-use environment.
How do you prevent borrowing or stealing of credentials? Its basically a helicoptering issue for us.
I am usually logged into Safari, Firefox and Chrome on my desktop
Chrome on my Laptop
Sometimes the Student/Teacher Apps
at the same time.
I have been wondering this for tests. Can a student be logged in on their computer, while looking at quizzes and homework on their phone?
I think I'm having an issue with quizzes in which students can login on 2 separate devices at the same time to take the same quiz. Surprised that for a quiz they are not restricted to one login per quiz. Understand you can login to Canvas multiple times simultaneously, but for a quiz - problem.
