Canvas iOS - Viewing Discussions Using the Canvas iOS app.

The Canvas app helps you keep track of all course discussions. You can also view newly created discussions or changes to discussions in the Notifications tab.


The images shown in this document are taken from an iPhone but unless otherwise noted an iOS tablet will mirror the same steps. 


Notes:
  • The Course Navigation menu matches the browser version of your Canvas course. If you are a student and Discussions is not available in Course Navigation, it will also be hidden from view in the app.
  • Currently, viewing rubrics in graded discussions is not supported in the app
