Canvas - How do I use the Teacher App?

The Canvas Teacher app provides quick access to grading via SpeedGrader, communicating through Announcements or Discussions, and updating of Assignments or Quizzes. Canvas Teacher is available for both Android and iOS devices.


Tips and Tricks

  • Not every feature of Canvas is available in the Teacher App. While AnnouncementsDiscussions, and Pages can be created, Assignments can only be edited if already created in the web version of Canvas. The Grades area cannot be accessed, but it is possible to grade submitted assignments using SpeedGrader in the app.
24/7/365 Canvas Support is available through the help icon in Canvas, by calling the phone support for faculty, staff and students or email us directly at
