Canvas Mobile Apps (Instructors)

You can access Canvas from any browser on your Android or iOS device. However, some features may not function as expected compared to viewing Canvas in a fully supported desktop browser.

On mobile devices, Canvas is designed to be used within Canvas mobile applications. Canvas pages supported when an action in the app links directly to the browser, such as opening a Discussion. Support is not extended to pages that cannot currently be used in the app, such as Conferences.

Additionally, Canvas offers limited support for native mobile browsers on tablet devices. For details, please reference the limited-support mobile browser guidelines.
