Canvas Student for Positive User Reviews

Missing Online Features for SubmissionIn general, this app is good. I can easily submit files of many types when I need to and for any class, and I can track grades, upcoming events, discussions, and more. I love the ability to watch videos in-app and track what I still need to do. There have been some issues with my To-Do list in the past and it’s been hard to find some of my assignments, but after investigating I realized that this was due to faulty organization and uploads by my instructors, not because of the app itself. The only problem I have with this app right now is that it is missing some of the features available online. In my online Canvas account, which I use on a PC, I can submit Google Drive or OneDrive files directly to Canvas. On my iPad, which is what I use with the app, I only have the ability to make a text entry or upload a file from my iPad itself, which means I have to go through the trouble of moving Microsoft files from OneDrive to my iPad’s regular storage. If you could add support for this on both the online version and app, then I’d be grateful. I’d also appreciate full-screen support for videos..Version: 6.8.6

I like it but there’s somthing wrongI like canvas better than google home beacuase it’s organized and it has a to do list to show you any work your missing and it has conferences that I think my teacher added but canvas my teacher can give us classes through it and she can even assign work for us I have to courses on for Arabic and the other one is just says my home room teachers name she teaches us all our classes but since carona we don’t even stay school long we only stay there four hours and leave one but on Friday we leave 12:30i really like it it makes everything easier but I think there’s a bug on my iPad when I tried at login it didn’t work and just showed a black screen and when my brother who goes to the same school as me it work we’re twins we’re in the same grade and I kinda feel left out to be the only fourth grader loving a teaching app like the just so goood.Version: 6.9.3

Student Canvas App ReviewThe Canvas app is extremely convenient (for both teachers, parents, and students) to use, at any time, anywhere. The app is easier to log into than the website, and it gets you in quicker, with barely any time wasted on loading. You can have the app on your phone or IPad, which makes it a very reliable backup option. You can also have multiple accounts on it, without having to log out on your main school account. The app enables you to check your grades, upload an assignment, submit an assignment, join a conference, message a teacher, etc. I like how on your phone, you can quickly access your account without waiting for the page to load, which isn’t even accessible on a phone. Not everyone has an IPad, so the free app, is very useful, especially during this time..Version: 6.8.3

Mr.Great practicality.Version: 6.17.0

Great App, but Needs a Few Minor TweaksFirst off, I want to say I love this app. Very easy for students to stay up to date on their schoolwork. I have used other programs such as My Big Campus and Blackboard Learn, but this app puts both of them to shape in terms of how easy it is to navigate. I could barely use their apps because everything was a mess, so good job with the creation of this app. However, I would like to make a few suggestions. As soon as something is posted to Canvas, it should you should IMMEDIATELY get a push notification and/or email. Sometimes, it takes several hours even though a grade, post, or assignment was posted a day ago, so make the notifications faster and more efficient. If I view a notification on the Canvas app, it should view as read on the desktop version. I notice when I view a notification on the app, it will show I have not viewed it on the desktop version. Also, find a way to allow users to do the “What-If?” grade scenarios on the app..Version: 6.4.6

Love this appVery well organized and easy to use for school porpoises is awesome.Version: 6.14.1

Why can’t we download lectures?Great app, love how accessible my grades are. Wish I could download lectures because sometimes the system can be overloaded or I don’t have wifi..Version: 6.6.8

Looking forward to the day I remove this app.Prior to my universities switching to Canvas, I haven’t imagined an app would be so bad that removing it from my devices will be part of the graduation celebrations. No split-screen multitasking. No drag and drop. Notifications lead me to home page instead of messages. And recently the app quits itself every day for my “updated language settings”..Version: 6.6.4

Great appHelped me with my school work and getting my teacher links.Version: 6.13.2

Back to school later in life-I just thought I would take one class at MiraCosta, but I ended up signing up for a few more than that, and I’m so glad I did. My son just graduated from high school, so I finally had the time to pursue my interest in marketing and business. I started off just taking one class and waitlisted a few others, but as they opened up, I decided, “Why not?” I’m loving my classes and my instructors! Even though I’m not tech savvy, it’s pretty easy to figure out and there’s lots of support here if you’re struggling. If I can figure it out...anyone can! And it’s been 20 plus years since I’ve been to college, but my instructors have been super supportive and helpful at every turn. I can’t believe it took me so long to get back to school, but now that I am, I’m loving it! I think MiraCosta is an excellent choice for someone who wants to go to college or back to college, no matter what the circumstances..Version: 6.8.9

Great access to MaterialInstead of reaching for my computer or laptop, I can easily receive material and read updates very well, as well as have accessibility to everything in each of my classes..Version: 6.14.1

Been greatCanvas has enabled me to learn in the pandemic.Version: 6.19.0

Push notifications for Canvas Emails!!!!!How is this not a thing? Push notifications for whenever someone emails you on canvas. So annoying missing emails.Version: 6.14.1

Lovely app I love it as a parentThis app is so useful my child is at home because of the things going around but she can still do the work her class mates are doing at school. My son on the other hand is also loving this app he is checking his inbox every day he is in year 7 and he loves it my daughter is in year 5 and is very happy in what she does this is a great app and I also love it. Thanks for making this lovely app and also there is a parent canvas as well so that is just lovely.Version: 6.7.0

University of British ColumbiaGetting educated.Version: 6.13.2

Canvas: the place to go.Canvas fully utilised, gives all students an opportunity to find out relevant information and instructions about courses at an early time as well as storing guidance for the future. It is my most useful tool to focus my studies..Version: 6.4.1

Widget AdditionCan you make a widget for To Do List? This seems obvious to me but it seemed to be over looked. I would rather know what I have to do next then know what grade I got or the 100 useless announcements daily..Version: 6.18.1

Canvas dark mode whenI am tired of this freaking app blinding me when I am working on assignments at night. This is a serious accessibility issue..Version: 6.14.2

AwesomeThe app has an excellent way of providing students with a quick and easy way to access their classes online..Version: 6.17.0

Student AruI suffer with mental health issues & consequently I am really appreciative that the app alongside the teachers can spam notify me early of assignments & other things. Keeps me in reality. Great app.Version: 6.18.0

Canvas AppIm at student at Anglia Ruskin Uni and i would like to be able to add ‘things to do’ on the “to do” tab of this app so that i can keep on top of things. I know that i can use calendar but i am unable to add a list in the to do tab which would be useful. Overall, this app is okay but there isn't any where within the tabs to make important notes and as a nursing student I'm always on the go..Version: 6.2.9

Great App 👍Gre.Version: 6.14.1

AmazingVery useful but my only problem is that I can’t get notifications on iPhone X... I am missing out on my university information. I will suggest an update for the new IPhone X . Other than that, I think is app is brilliant.Version: 3.19.3

Great in most ways, except one MAJOR flawThe Canvas student app is really responsive and high functioning, almost easier to use sometimes than the actual desktop site. It makes doing school work while on the go a total breeze. HOWEVER, I knocked a star off because there is just one MAJOR issue that I hope they can fix in a future update. I’ve noticed that whenever I navigate away from the app and then return (for example, checking a module for an assignment due date, navigating away to my calendar app, then navigating back to canvas to read further) the app backs out from where I was and returns to the main screen. This is really ANNOYING and I wish it would be fixed. I don’t close the app, I simply switch to a different one, but when I return I have to navigate all the way back to where I was, often needing to click through multiple menu bars to get back to my place. It’s really aggravating when trying to multitask (as all students usually are), especially when phones these days are trying to make multitasking more intuitive and easier to manage. Hopefully that can be fixed because otherwise this is a really successful app..Version: 6.6.4

Good to greatI used to have problems navigating has gone from good to great...Version: 6.8.6

More accessible and easy to use than the computerI enjoy using this instead of having to log on every time on a web browser and having to boot up my computer, it’s also wherever I am. I do have a couple of occasional issues though, sometimes the app doesn’t load, it just keeps showing the canvas logo rotating forever (I think it may have something to do with having do not disturb on, I don’t know if it’s exclusive to my 2017 model iPad Pro 10.5 or if it could be a generic issue). Also, when writing a long reply on a discussion, the letters sometimes can start to fall behind, even to the point of a full second delay and then it will start back spacing if you made a mistake and won’t stop for a minute. This problem may have been fixed just this week with a canvas update (not the app, just canvas in general). The only thing I would like added is the option to edit a post/reply in discussions, I really wish I could do this without having to log on online and just use the app. But overall all, this is a great app to use..Version: 6.6.8

Difficult to NavigateIt’s difficult to navigate. You keep going back on yourself. When you eventually find what you are looking for it works well. I like the fact there is a mobile app. Means you can access on the move..Version: 6.9

4 starsEasy to use and well structured and makes looking at content while on the move much easier. Loses a star because it keeps providing notifications for things even if there’s no new content posted. And when there is I get the same notification 3-4 times over a 30 minute period which can be quite annoying..Version: 6.8.1

I love this!This app is so helpful! It’s really nice to be able to check things like grades, announcements and more quickly on your phone. I have a canvas page for all of my classes and this is just what I needed. Another thing this mobile app has really helped me with is submitting videos. Some assignments, especially for my orchestra class, have assignments where you need to submit a video and it’s really hard to get good quality on a chrome book. Before I had this app, when I needed to record a video I’d make it on my phone and then go through a painful process of sending it to my school computer. With this app I can just upload it from my phone! :) I’m only in middle school but I care a lot about doing well in school so if your like me this a great second set of eyes to monitor everything. 💖.Version: 6.14.1

HiI like it so yah get it cool k got it back to the end of the driveway and then we’ll go get through it tomorrow morning or Tina we’ll see what time we get out of the driveway and then we will to pick it back on Sunday and then we can move forward with the next few questions thanks.Version: 6.14.0

Use anywhereI had time to spare. I opened the app, did some study. There was instant access, instant information access and no wait to access further information. A great way to learn..Version: 6.16.0

Great App!I have been using Canvas for about a year now and it's been very helpful! Although the initial switch from Google Classroom to Canvas in my school district was hard, I have now gotten used to the apps interface and how it works. I like how organized everything is in the app, I can see all my classes laid out when I open it. If I click on one of my classes, I can easily open modules to find my assignments. I can also keep track of my assignments with the todos tab and inbox which shows messages from my teachers. Turning items in is also an easy process (depending on which format). You can turn in with audio, website URL, media recording, file upload, or text submission (depending on what the teacher chooses as submission process). Another great aspect is that all of your assignments are sorted by unit in the modules making it very easy to find your needed assignments. Overall Canvas is a good app, I only gave it 4 stars because on several occasions my teachers have made the app more difficult by allowing only a certain type of submission/ locking material by mistake, etc. I do have one recommendation, and that is when you film an in app video submission, there should be a pause button, I have experienced times when I was not able to pause and I wanted to..Version: 6.8.0

Does whats neededWe use Canvas for UniMelb as our LMS system. Its ok… the calendar could be much better, especially letting us find appointments such as on the desktop website. Otherwise gets the job done. I am finding I am getting duplicated notifications (3 for 1 event)! I was wondering if that is a bug or something????.Version: 6.15.1

I like it butI like it but it’s annoying how many notifications we get for one thing, like I get two notifications every time I get a email or something changes, also when I click on the announcements, I have to go through every single announcement to get ride of the red bubble. It’s also annoying how I can’t set to-do’s. Thanks bye.Version: 6.6.12

Great, could be greaterI like how smoothly I can access the different features I normally use on my desktop. I can get to my inbox, discussions, assignment pages, and grades easily and the text, pictures, and videos are all there and clear. I do wish the designers would add a few things, though. On the desktop, I can access an edit and delete button in the discussion threads. Those aren’t on the mobile app, unfortunately, so I have to log in on my laptop or desktop if I want to edit anything I’ve already submitted. I wish the edit and delete buttons were on the mobile app. I also can copy and paste on the desktop without the font formatting changing. If I do that on the app, I notice colors and sizes change and spaces can disappear between paragraphs. I do wish there was a way to copy and paste without that formatting changing. I also wish there was a way to delete submissions from my files page. That’s not on the mobile app or the desktop version. Aside from that, I really like this app. Homework would be delayed without it. With this, I can access my school stuff anywhere I have a wifi signal..Version: 6.16.0

AMAZING!This app is single handedly saving my college career! It is easy to understand and it keeps all my assignments organized. It has a to do list that shows a notification until it is done which is a total life saver! Makes it really hard to forget things and I love it so much!!.Version: 6.14.1

Good but some easy to fix issuesThe app is great and does whatever it needs to do. The only problem is, when you are looking at a rubric for an assignment, you can’t see how much marks whatever area is worth unless you go on the website version which takes too long to access. I know that this is an easy fix because it’s been there before but in one of the past updates it’s disappeared. Thanks for making such a good app, but please fix it..Version: 6.5.2

New DesignThis app made the studying process so much easier. They did a great job on how everything functioning but I removed one star because of their recent design changes. The app icon appears to be red with white logo on it, which made it very hard to see new notifications (since they also appear red in apple devices). I don’t usually write reviews but this really became uncomfortable for me personally. For example, I don’t get notifications on my locked screen, and my banners are also turned off when I get a notifications. When I unlock my phone I could still see that little red circle in the upper right corner of the app icon (that would tell me that I have a message or something). However, now the app is red, and I don’t notice a new notifications because two same colors blend together... I hope this review is helpful. I like the app in general. To all their team, thank you for your hard work..Version: 6.7.1

A terrible app at the momentWorked perfectly fine at first however every time I open the app I cannot click on any icons and the app just freezers and it’s seriously annoying and affecting my studies..Version: 6.13.2

Surprised by how good the app isI downloaded the app thinking it’ll be like the other IT services on offer through uni, slow outdated clunky etc. This app is the opposite, it’s quick, has everything I need, never logs me out/resets, even when I haven’t used it all day. It links well to zoom so makes this “learning from home” a little easier..Version: 6.9.4

Great app 👍Easy to use, and compatible with most devices, which is really helpful as it can be used on the go, anytime,anyplace,anywhere as long as there’s internet connection ! Awesome.Version: 6.3.1

Good but...Would be nice if we were able to flip the orientation of the screen (on mobile phones etc.) This would help with looking at slides and videos. Thanks.Version: 6.5.4

Love it, love it , love itI love this program, the app as well. It's treated me well the past few years that I have been in college. If there's schools that use other programs, they should change to this one ! The ONLY issues I have are this : One. I wish that with new upcoming semesters I would be able to look up all my classes like I can do on a computer and add them to my main page , as long as they are published and ready to be added. This isn't a big problem since I can always use the computer laptop to do this, but it would be nice to do on my phone. Two. When I get notifications for files added and announcements, and I click in to it on my iPhone, it only brings me to the first page that you always are greeted with that just has all your classes and stuff. It would be really cool if from the phone we could click into that notification and be brought directly to that announcement, assignment, or whatever else. Again, minor stuff that would be cool if changed, but LOVE CANVAS!.Version: 3.18.5

Best appLiterally one of the best apps out there for university students, so helpful and awesome.Version: 6.19.1

This app is straight legitness, not even gonna lieApp is very smooth, very intuitive and very easy to manage u nomsayin. Recently they made it even better by fixing up the discussion pages. Lecture slides can be viewed inside the app which is dank as hell if you ask me, very useful. Overall this app is dank legitness fam, nomsayin. The devs are riding a wave here, they know what they're doing, fam I'd buy them a beer if I saw them irl nomsayin. 10/10 app.Version: 6.3.1

Canvas is just..Amazing.So if you didn’t already read the title, I’m basically going to explain how Canvas is “..Amazing.” so, I might be a little sarcastic when I say “Canvas is just..Amazing.” but it’s pretty close to being just that, since it’s a really nice thing for students like me, I’m currently in Middle School using this and it’s just so helpful. I don’t always have to go to safari anymore, I mean I don’t hate safari it’s also helpful and nice, but Canvas is better fit for my school stuff instead of safari. Canvas allows me to message my teachers which is very helpful since all lot of times I need to ask them questions so Canvas makes that WAY more easier and it shows me all my tests and my grade and all that. It’s really helpful for something that’s half of my life right now. So, the creator of Canvas, I just want to say thank you for creating this wonderful app. Thank you..Version: 6.14.0

Very goodIt worked well and never from me but the only downside I had with this app is that it did work, and unlike the app in my old school which never worked a day in its miserable life, this one doesn’t give me an excuse to not do homework. Good but bad. Whatever take five stars bye!!.Version: 6.15.1

Saved by Canvas, Access Lecture Slides On the Go!... please review the notification system though...Pros: Glad I don’t have to whip out my laptop to review subject content. All in the palm of my hand, easy to navigate and load content. Cons: Notifications are so annoying! I hate seeing red and numbers everywhere even though I’ve read them. Also so there a way to “mark as read”. Would calm my anxiety. Please and thank you..Version: 6.3.1

IPhone scrolling issueI use Canvas via Swinburne online and there seems to be a glitch with the iPhone display of conversation threads in that the pages appear massively too large for he device and scrolling takes forever. The comments are 40- 50 swipes down the page, even when there are few comments. I guess, I’m a nutshell, it’s not very responsive..Version: 6.4.3

Previous userI downloaded the app because it allowed me to interact with my instructors & fellow classmates. Somehow there was an update to the app & I can’t get into it anymore. There’s a function that allows a person to reset password & every time I try & request a new password via email, I never get anything from canvas at all. When I go into my school website on the computer, my info works just fine so I’m getting the password right they just don’t have my info in their system or something. I have also had other issues but nowhere to go & try to get help for this app. I’ll be deleting it off my phone since I can’t get in anyway. And it will remain deleted unless they go back to the way the app was 2 weeks ago. Fix your app idk how that needs to be done but it isn’t working for me & there’s no one to call or email for issues unless you’re logged into the app🙄.Version: 6.4.5

Bonne applicationBon logo.Version: 6.14.2

Great app but needs some bug fixesThis app is great for our school needs but while using it on the iPad we get random and extremely repetitive alerts (5 in a minute and this continues throughout the day randomly) for “User is not able to access this content” that we need to dismiss to carry on working. Nothing is opened that we can pinpoint as the reason for this alert. It is very frustrating. Other than that, no issues at all..Version: 6.6

Nothing amazingI’m a student who is in lockdown currently and online learning is the only way that I can go to school so my teachers are using any app to help make things easier for us, and this app is extremely helpful and easy. The reason I said nothing amazing is because I hate school and I hate anything to do with it. But the app is good..Version: 6.13.0

Works pretty good. I like using it, and do.I definitely get benefit from using this app for three classes now. Starting on the 4th. I gave it 5 stars because it is useful. Recommendations for improvement include: the Echo 360 videos do not have audio on my iPad; the People section does not have the groups; power point slides get rendered a little off, but good enough, and there is a way to copy to Power Point for IOS so that is ok. Pretty good integration with Office and OneDrive on IOS; the discussions it would be nice to have a toggle to a view with all reply’s expanded, then back again to only top level posts to be drilled down into. The first two made it so I had to lug my personal laptop on business trips in order to do all I needed for the classes. Still, I found this app worthwhile. Keep on improving it so that it can be used equivalently to the full PC browser based version..Version: 3.19.3

AwesomeReal helpful to have! Easily can access canvas without taking out my laptop and logging I every single time 👌.Version: 6.4.6

Great for studentsGreat app for students to see their upcoming assignments and course colanders. Plz add a night mode feature..Version: 6.11.2

Application works great but one feature doesn’t work wellOne of the modules I teach incorporates multiple studios which students are allocate to. This was arranged by creating a new tab under the ‘people’ section which includes subgroups that students can be assigned to. These set of groups allow us to send separate announcements and files to the group members, making things easier to organize. ISSUE: Students are able to access this seperate Group as it appears in their dashboard in the app. Whereas Teachers can only access these groups via a browser under ‘people’ to make amendments and post announcements, the app does not provide any access to these new groups to teachers on the app, can this be fixed please. Many thanks and keep up the good work!.Version: 6.20.0

Functional, however...Great interface and well organised! However, I constantly receive errors when I open pages, stating “Page Not Found” when there is visible information. Otherwise, aside the constant tapping to dismiss the error, works nicely! (Would greatly appreciate if this was resolved) :-).Version: 6.4.6

Good PlatformCompared to some other online classroom platforms, Canvas is pretty good in terms of what it provides and how it does so. The UI is simple but at the mercy of the course instructor. Some create a fantastically laid out course while other instructors do not. The calendar portion works fine so it must have been updated. The grades portion is very useful. It shows your current grade which is merely all the work you have completed so far to include what work you have left and then your “what-if” grade which is what your grade is for just the work completed and not including ungraded or future work. It’s a great tool as well as you can manipulate your scores to see how your grade changes if you get certain scores on assignments. So for what it is, it’s a good app and a good supplement to the web version, though can be used solely as one’s primary way of connecting. However, the app needs a dark mode!.Version: 6.13.2

I love it!It’s so convenient! I can quickly see who posted responses to my initial posts. I can see what’s coming up in the next few days so it can be ahead of my assignments. Having the app on my phone just makes it easy to do things, plan and organise my workload with my family, work, study, and my calling..Version: 6.4.6

What about canvasWelll it is not allowing me to text anyone And yes I know this is not working and that but I have reloaded it and it won’t let me and someone I need to tel the teacher something and it doesn’t work,that is what. I am concerned about and anyways everything else is like really good because it’s like a really good website and that you feel like school needs to like have a website like to like to online learning or something or like any assessments so that is why I’m writing it four.Version: 6.14.1

Apple Pencil!Ive only just discovered Canvas has really great note taking features for tables (e.g. iPad Pro). I was using Notability up until now but through pure accident I discovered Canvas lets you draw on lecture slides with a stylus and saves your edits. The interface for using the stylus is actually much better than paid for apps created specifically for that! Really impressed, sad I didn’t know about this at the start of uni. Better late than never - but please point it out more for others who don’t know..Version: 6.4.6

Helpful on the phoneThis app has been a great way to stay up to date with all the learning modules on the go. On busy days, it’s often difficult to sit down with a laptop. Having this app on the phone with all the info has made my study so much possible..Version: 6.10.2

Information disappearsIt was working beautifully when I downloaded this app and I was using it everyday. Now, it doesn’t show the new notifications nor when I go to my units do the discussions show up. Please fix this issue. Thanks..Version: 6.4.1

🌜🌚Dark mode for late night studies would be fantasticApp works really well and I enjoy it. Makes it handy to read your lectures or access ressources on the go. However it lacks a dark mode quite badly. That white background is killing my eyes Best, William.Version: 6.13.0

Canvas is a fantastic platformAfter having used Canvas for my MSc I can safely say it is an excellent platform. Rather than fishing your way around a website my study, reading material, links, discussion board, and course tools were all at hand and easily identifiable. Using this application provided me with no limitations and made studying a lot less stressful. Thank you..Version: 6.11.2

Amazing appSo easy to use, everything is organised for you and helps you keep up with your assignments. Never had a problem finding the work I need..Version: 6.9.8

Friendly interface, well designedWorks well for iPhone, well optimised to mobile, would recommend.Version: 6.9.4

Well implementedI was pleasantly surprised by the outstanding simplistic visual design and ease of access. The overall experience overshadows that of the desktop version, which in contrast is quite clunky and inconsistent. There are little to no bugs or GUI glitches, and coupled with the streamlined usability it is a breeze to use. All features of the web desktop version are carried over to this app, and with many improvements. Animations are fluid, and general responsiveness feels on par with that of Apple or Google’s system apps. Did not except such outstanding achievement from a government branch, as most services offered are terribly designed with an inconsistent user interface. Whichever team who was behind the optimisation and general design of the application deserves a raise..Version: 6.8.3

One bug, but overall greatI’ve been using Canvas for school for the past 3 years and I’ve gotta say that it is a very reliable platform to use. Everything is organized, assignments/courses are easy to navigate, and the whole app in general is pretty user-friendly. However, one problem I have been having recently is it sometimes the app freezes whenever I open it and click on one of the menus at the bottom of the screen. Once this happens, I can’t click on anything or do anything in the app, and the only way to fix it is to delete the app and redownload it. This has been very frustrating for me, as the only other way to access Canvas is to use a search engine and go to the website version, which is a hastle in itself. So I just needed to share this issue I am having with the app. Nonetheless, Canvas is a great platform to use, especially for educational purposes..Version: 6.13.1

2SLGBTQ courseBarry is an awesome instructor. I have learned so much under his excellent teaching and leadership experience..Version: 6.18.1

To Do List tab needs fixesReally great app and super useful when I don’t have my laptop. However I use the To Do List tab a lot and in my classes that don’t require me to turn in digitally (so i do so on paper in class), it still shows up AFTER my teacher puts in a grade. Wish it was more flexible and student friendly. If i could add or take assignments off when I needed (and an erased tab in case i accidentally did the wrong one). If it was more like the computer face version this tab would be great. I can turn pictures of stuff in, has me set my notifications, and send emails here, really great app overall. I recommend having it in your pocket. .-. I was once at a football game and forgot i had an essay due that night. Went on my google docs app to work on it right on my phone. Then and there and was able to turn it in later on canvas with no computer! Didn’t have to leave the football game either, win win..Version: 6.10.2

Good app, easy to navigate, but lacks a dark modeHave no troubles navigating and using the application, but the lack of a dark mode makes it difficult to read text. Every single app on my device has dark mode except for this one. It's just like looking directly into the sunlight whenever I use the application..Version: 6.9.7

Very good Just one problemIt’s a very good app although for some reason I can’t access assignments it doesn’t show when I press assignments as sometimes I like to use my iPad to access while doing my work on my laptop Just need to fix this but everything else is great.Version: 6.8.5

Great app, could use minor updateI absolutely love this apps usability. I just have a couple suggestions to make it a little more user friendly. Not sure if this matters, but I go to Ashford University. First, it would be nice to have your own posts displayed at the top of each discussion, so they are easier to locate. Instead of having to scroll down through every other post just to find your own. Second, although the notifications are nice, they can also be a bit annoying. Especially since clicking on the notification does not take you directly to the specific reply of that post. It simply takes you into the app and then you have to “guess” who commented and on which post. Those are my only two suggestions/complaints. Other than that, the app is awesome! Fix these two things and I’ll change my rating to 5 stars..Version: 3.20.4

Handily the best central education platformCanvas is second to none in my mind. Not much more I can, or really need to, say. The app and website work really amazingly and they both integrate some really excellent features lacking on other platforms I've used. And the software team isn't lazy about updating it. They're very proactive and new versions reliably come out at least weekly. However, I will add something the app does that is quite annoying (though not enough to take away a star from my overall rating): regardless of the keyboard I use to write a discussion post on my phone, if I try to tap and replace a word after scrolling further up the post as I'm writing it, the screen automatically scrolls back down and will not let me select the word without much pushback and struggling. I've found success accomplishing that task maybe twice out of the hundreds of times I've tried it now. It drives me nuts, but Canvas is still handily the best. The app would be quite literally perfect if this one issue were addressed. Thank you, devs!.Version: 6.14.2

A really useful applicationCanvas for my phone is so useful as I can use my phone to keep track of all the hw I have to do easily without having to fire up my computer. The fact that it can also send notifications is really useful too.Version: 6.6.11

Excellent appGreat job with everything I absolutely have no complaints!.Version: 6.15.1

This is an amazing app 🤩This is so user friendly and lets you see your course books, grades, assessments, etc..Version: 6.15.2

Finally an app for this!It was exhausting constantly going online to check for grades or updated material on canvas. It’s so much simpler with an app. This one is super easy to navigate // no complaints..Version: 6.6.4

UmmmmI use this all the time on my computer and it works fine, but I can’t seem to find my school when it asks!? I’m sure it would be handy to have on my phone but I can’t find my school/school district! Pls Help!.Version: 6.15.3

Great app with some issues here and thereLove the app overall! I would love to see an updated UI in the future to kind of bring everything together a little better. I have found issues with the mobile app not being able to load certain files at times (ie. PPT, Word, and other extensions). Perhaps the most problematic is the failure to load grades in the correct module. I can usually get around it by going to assignments though. Something else that I will note it the somewhat cumbersome viewing of comments on papers. Each time a specific comment is viewed it takes you out of the paper completely, or you have to swipe down again. It just feels rather clunky and I think it can be better implemented. I love Canvas and look forward to seeing where it goes. Oh, and I’m not sure if it is already available but I would love to see this tied into a degree plan completion module somehow to know which courses have fulfilled certain requirements. This may already be available I’m not sure..Version: 6.9.6

Please fix app restartLove this app really helpful for uni but the only aspect holding back a star is that the app restarts every time it is closed. Frustrating when I’m in and out of canvas having to start from the home screen every time. On the whole fantastic app though very clean interface..Version: 6.4

Nitharshanan RaviIt is a really good app, but iPhone users as me would like it if you can do what if grade on our phones. Samsung users can do it on their phones and if seems to be a bit unfair..Version: 6.14.1

Ollie_niyitegeka📷Very well organised study app.Version: 6.15.2

Not able to find Urkund reportRecommend... need to use browsers and laptop/ other device to look for urkund report... since the app do not display the text matching report (urkund)... could be very exciting if we could see the draft report text matching results... 😇😅 overall the app is great.....Version: 6.9.6

RatingAmazing App! :).Version: 6.5

Very handy appI’ve been using since I joined individual module studies and very easy to use + always up to date 👍 A just for student Thank you.Version: 6.19.1

SurveyMaterial is clear and understandable, in an orderly manner, and very easy to be able to submit assignments and retrieve information. The online system has never, ever given me problems. And for a person that was used to the traditional format of in-person classes as well as a person who is not technical savvy and gets very frustrated with difficult online systems, I can say that the online class system has been a pleasant, stress free, and productive experience. I am very thankful that the staff has worked toward making a system that is understandable for people like me. I haven’t been in school for almost ten years. So I am very pleased that the system didn’t confuse and stress me. I look forward to continuing taking my classes and finishing the program. I really like the class, my instructor, and enjoy doing the assignments very much. Because of this class, I am very motivated to continuing and finishing..Version: 6.16.0

It's improving! Getting closer!I'm getting much happier with the new updates that have rolled out recently. Most of the functionality is intact, which makes it really good for getting a forum post or two done during down time somewhere. Some things that are still a bit difficult are picking up discussion conversations that you have posted in. There is no way to quickly find or jump to posts that you have already made, which makes it difficult in larger classes with protracted discussions. Perhaps tagging people in a Facebook name type format and then being able to jump to that particular point in the discussions would help this? The only other major problem that I've found (and this may just be an IOS problem) is that if I switch to another app to copy and paste some material or even just the web page url itself, the app closes itself and I lost my entire post. Like I said, this may just be an IOS thing with memory management but it is still a major pain in the rear to lose a long post that was typed on a mobile keyboard. Overall it works well for me and I'm pretty happy with it! Keep up the improvements, it's about there!.Version: 6.6.4

One large flaw lets down this otherwise brilliant appOn the whole the app functions exactly as you would expect and want. Intuitive and fast. Everything for your course in one place. The one Large flaw I refer to is that if you switch to another app Canvas resets itself, it also doesn’t allow for split screen on iPads. This means you can’t make notes or cross check anything online without having to go back to square one when using the app again. If this could be remedied it would be a 5 star app in my opinion..Version: 6.3.6

🦄⭐️One Slight Thing Wrong!⭐️🦄Dear Developers Of Canvas, I Absolutely Love This App As It Is Quite Helpful To See My Grades In Such An Easy And Organised Dashboard. I Also Love How Easy It Is To Log In, Do It Once And Your Practically Logged In Forever. I Don’t Really Recommend Never Logging Out Because If You Lose Your Phone/iPad/iPod, Anyone That Finds It Will Be Able To Log In Unless You Have A Password To Unlock Your Device Which Is What A Lot Of Devices Have. If You Keep Logging In Repeatedly, You Will Remember You Login Details Better! Also, Sometimes After I Have Left The App For A While (Few Weeks etc.) It Sort Of Loses Progress And I Have To Connect It Back To My School And Log In etc. Apart From That, I Really Like This App And Would Recommend It To Any School. Sincerely, Victoricorn!.Version: 6.6.8

Small problem with the app!Everything is absolutely fine. Working very efficiently however the new update of canvas is not allowing me to see any images that have been uploaded to the pages by the lecturer, therefore I can’t see half of my notes. Otherwise, the app i working very well no other problems..Version: 6.9.4

Application Name is WrongThe application shows up as ‘Student’ rather than ‘Canvas’ on my iPhone. Can you please update the application to fix this?.Version: 6.10.2

Awesome but some sad disappointmentsI love this app but I think it should be changed to that you can do it on the weekends I cannot see why not. Can anyone please tell me? If I could change it I would make it so you can use it on the weekends because it’s mostly the only time I use it.Version: 6.20.0

Great app to keep up to date!Just discovered this app after recommendation from a fellow student and has been fantastic for managing my program. I can check when assignments are due, read any messages, and basically just keep up to date. Great especially when you don’t have your laptop or tablet. Would definitely recommend..Version: 6.3.1

Great for faculty only, calendar is uselessNothing auto uploads to the calendar. If I have to personally check 10 sources to make sure Im on schedule, this is basically a very complicated syllabus with a forum attached to it. The format allows and inadvertently causes faculty to make busy work for the student by uploading more and more materials with more deadlines to keep track of, but since it does little to organize or enhance workflow, it has essentially made it more work for the student as you are looking through 50 pages of materials to make sure you’ve covered all the bases. I’d rather have a paper syllabus and take home handouts as needed, then have to keep track of hundreds of files, notifications, emails, forms and dates throughout the term. Its idea of a solution inadvertently creates a bigger problem. You’d think everyone having remote access to something would make the workflow more efficient. Instead it just opens floodgates to 40 people at a time thinking “Oh, I’ll just say or add this one more thing...” At least add a global search tool..Version: 6.6.3

Lacks standardisationCanvas is ok however the information used by universities is not standardised and when you go to look for stuff can be confusing. ThThere are no user guides to help direct you or hover prompts.. Relies on users to explore the software to get most out of it....Version: 6.10.0

Almost thereHaving a hard time using the Group and Discussion function with class meme eta. It doesn’t seem to be available on the app but is on the web browser. It will help a lot if it is also integrated as well..Version: 6.14.2

Great appReally impressed with this app. Everything is really easy to find and navigate. My go to place for all my uni information. Love it ❤️.Version: 6.13.0

International hospitality travel and managementEverything that I have been learning makes more sense than last year so far I think I have learnt things that will support and help me in assignments and exams my teachers are supportive kinda and always willing to help when we need help so far so good.Version: 6.4

Efficient Academic AppThe app is so helpful when it comes to checking off to-do lists arranged according the due dates. There are hardly any glitches. It’s quite useful when attempting quizzes on the go..Version: 6.19.0

Makes accessing things easierHi, I like how the emails and the log of what assignments that can be done are found here. All from the convenience of my phone, anywhere..Version: 6.22.0

Useful but buggyThe app is well laid out and accessible, I happily use it frequently. On occasion it will unexpectedly close or take 2 attempts to open, so I’ve give it 4 stars..Version: 6.6.3

Very goodThis app is helping me so much I might actuelly suceed my biology as levels by end of year just because this app told me how to get the answers..Version: 6.19.1

Way better than Black BoardIdk if it's Canvas or my university, or both but canvas is way better then Blackboard. Everything is well organised, easy to find and runs nicely across all my devices. I find my self doing most of my content learning from my smartphone and just doing assignments on my laptop. This is great for me as I study online and am always on the go..Version: 3.18.5

Great app!As a high school student, I can assure you this app is very helpful, visually pleasing, and easy to use. I’ve been using it for almost 2 years now, and there’s only been one glitch in which there was a problem with my battery level. Definitely recommend!.Version: 6.15.4

AWESOME APPBest app on my phone!!! Love how well organised everything is for my courses I’m taking every semester..Version: 6.6.1

FeedbackGood and at times to be mentioned, typing off electronic device takes a while for the typing to be updated on the screen. Other than that excellent..Version: 6.4.6

Canvas Aspire 2I’m not alway able to access my course when logging on to Canvas or aspire2 web site. Hopes via my phone will be a simpler way to study the course I’m on..Version: 6.19.0

Multitasking issue needs to be fixedEvery time the app is minimized and brought up again, it kicks you to the dashboard, very annoying..Version: 6.4.1

GoodCanvas is really helpful for me at school, but just one thing. I get way to many notifications, i’m mot sure if that’s canvas itself or if its my school posting way too much, but either way, maybe turn down the notification rate. Other than that, amazing app, helps me a lot for school work and assignments/assessments, would highly recommend!.Version: 6.7.1

Really good appDark mode is here! Now that dark mode has been introduced, I can’t fault the app on much at all. It’s easy to access course materials and view relevant information. I really like the integration of widgets too, so I can see what my recent grades are at a glance. With dark mode, I can now study without killing my eyes at night! 😁 Keep it up! — Original review — This app is easy to use and has a very nice layout. A dark mode would be beneficial when studying during the night time to protect eyes and battery life..Version: 6.16.0

Viewing CommentsWhenever I view a teachers comments on a specific question on a annotated document, the files and rubric tab pops back up to the top. This makes reviewing assignments long and tedious, as usually there are many comments, and sometimes it doesn’t even let me close the tab. Other then that the format of this app is good..Version: 6.14.1

HelpfulReally helpful and easy to use..Version: 6.14.2

Disorganized mess.Canvas is a disorganized mess. My school recently switched over from eLearning and that program was SO much better! The discussion boards are a mess. You have to scroll through tons of posts to be able to get to yours. When you get a notification about a comment on the discussion board there is no way to tell if it was a reply to your post or just another reply unless you scroll through. It’s difficult to find anything. I understand there is a learning curve anytime you switch to a new program but it’s really unfortunate when you switch from a great program to a lesser program when the only difference is one has an app (that is still a lesser program) and the other you have to go into safari or another browser (as if that is that hard). Overall, I am terribly disappointed and the hype around this program must just come from people who have never had a better program..Version: 6.3.4

HelloI like our teachers and online classes very much. We feel that online classes are more effective and fruitful than in school. We hope to continue online classes next semester,.Version: 6.13.2

Nice But…This student app is really nice except that I don’t know how to use it. Once you open the app, everything looks confusing. It would also be better if you made it work without internet..Version: 6.18.0

Great and useful appI recommend this app, super helpful for looking at your courses.Version: 6.14.1

Double NotificationsEverytime there is a notification from Canvas, it displays two notifications. Also, if you click on the notification it displays two of the windows, so if its an announcement notification, it’ll display the announcement twice. So everything is doubling up, the notification and the pop up..Version: 6.9.1

Great AppLove it.Version: 6.6.10

Pretty great, but would love some improvements!Edit: Would it be possible to only receive notifications for replies to my own discussion post and not all discussion posts? I like the app in general. It sure is handy. I don’t like that the To Do tab only shows a limited amount of tasks and that you can add or view To Do tasks that were added by oneself. You can view the To Dos you added using the desktop website in the Calendar tab in iPad and iPhone, but you cannot add, edit or delete them. I really wish the To Do tab was more useful in the iPad and iPhone apps. Another thing I noticed is that when a particular course imports quizzes from an external application like Cengage Mindtap, it does not mark the assignment as completed in the To Do list. It has to be checked off manually. I wish the To Do list (or List View in the Dashboard tab on desktop) were enhanced as having a comprehensive and editable list of To Do’s is very useful for students to track their assignments. I also noticed that the Inbox feature in the mobile app versions lack a couple capabilities that at least exist in the desktop version. For example, members of a group message can view who is in the message thread while on desktop. But in the mobile apps, you would only see the addressees by clicking reply all..Version: 6.9.8

AccessibilityOn the phone app I must select by school and log in every time . It should be able to lock the school and remember log in and then if needed there can be a choice of “change school” just like it is with other accounts on emails and other applications ..Version: 6.9.2

CanvasI think the canvas set up is very impressive and functional. I especially like the links to research papers online and the email functionality.Version: 6.18.0

Pretty Good!This app is fantastic, it’s much easier than having to pull out my computer every time I want to check grades, messages, etc and helps me keep on track. The “to-do” feature is especially helpful, as it’s basically a planner built into my phone without me having to do any work! It’s a great way to check my assignments easily without having to click on every class to see them. The reason I gave this 4 stars and not 5, though, is because of the amount of duplicate messages and emails I get, as well as the structure of them. Every notification of a new grade, assignment date change, etc is delivered to my phone twice- which isn’t awful, it just gets really irritating after a while. The other reason is the emails I get tend to be pretty unhelpful- such as, “your assignment in x class was graded,” but it doesn’t tell me the grade in the email, so what’s the point of sending it? Overall, though, there are definitely more pros than cons to this app, so I’m not going to complain about it too much :).Version: 6.15.1

Discussion tabGood app, thanks. But can you guys please put the newest comments on the discussion board on top rather than bottom, so we don’t have to scroll all the way down to see the latest replies. Thank you :).Version: 6.2.2

When it rains, it poursI hate my life but this app is good.Version: 6.10.1

Not Quite There YetThis is a good compliment to Canvas Web as it allows iPhone and iPad users to access most of the features in the web version such as course announcements and grades. The integration of the app with the filesystem is also appreciated—users can upload and download assignments directly from and to other apps installed on the device. However, the app is incomplete. The Dashboard in the iOS/iPadOS version lacks the List View found in the web version, which I find beneficial as I can go directly to assignments or announcements without clicking through deeply nested sets of menus and enables me to see tasks to do in one screen. There is also a lack of support for Dark Mode, which makes the app look like it does not integrate well with the rest of the operating system. To improve, developers can add more features from the web client to the iOS/iPadOS version, bringing them on par with each other. Canvas iOS can also try to integrate more with the ecosystem such as implementing dark mode and synchronising notifications across different devices with Canvas installed..Version: 6.14.0

Awesome!Very nicely organized and functions quickly with my grades! Yay!.Version: 6.18.1

Soooo convenientGreat lil tool to have on your phone or device! Easy to use, keeps you up to date and can quickly view articles, books etc and read in iBook. Love it!!! 👌.Version: 3.18.6

Student point of viewI have been using canvas for many years. The look hasn’t changed at all at it is frustrating at times because you can’t find assignments. The to do list is pretty much useless if you accidentally click the x you loose the assignment and have to talk to your teacher. The layout of the app in general could be better and it could add more interesting things to make students not hate it. I will say google classroom is my preferably choice because it is easier to attach assignments by clicking 2 -3 buttons but for canvas you have yo pick how you want to submit it and then attach it then confirm it and so on so forth. I also don’t like how when you use the text box entry it doesn’t save your progress. I can’t tel you the many times that I have accidentally closed the tab and had all of my progress gone and there is no way to get it back..Version: 6.13.1
