The Canvas App for Faculty

Time is an instructor’s most valuable resource. Save time and use Canvas more efficiently from your mobile device with Canvas Teacher. The app allows instructors to facilitate their courses on the go, both inside and outside the classroom. This app provides quick access to three of the most frequent course facilitation tasks for teachers:

  • Grading: Browse submissions and provide feedback to your students with a new and improved mobile SpeedGrader embedded in this app.
  • Collaborating: Send announcements and messages (including "Message Students Who...") and participate in course discussions from the palm of your hand.
  • Updating: Need to change a due date? Or publish an assignment? Or fix a misspelling? Canvas Teacher allows you to update your course content.

UTSA faculty can download the official Canvas instructor apps on their Apple iOS and Google Android devices.
