Canvas: How to set up the Canvas app on your phone (for teachers and students).

  1. Log into Canvas.
  2. Download the appropriate app from the app store. There are teacher, parent, and student apps.
  3. On your computer, click on the account icon on the top left of your screen.
  4. Click on “QR Code for Mobile Login” and click “Proceed”
  5. Open the app on your phone, click on “QR Code | Canvas Network”
  6. Move your phone so that the QR Code shows up on your camera.
  7. You’re in.


Note: Students follow the same exact procedure. Consider sending this home to your students and using 5 minutes of class time to walk them through these steps.  When they turn in work on their phone, they can easily attach photos, which is much more doable than taking a picture, sending it to their computer, then attaching that photo.
