Canvas: View Your Course Site on the Student App

As an instructor, you should assume your students will be accessing their course sites using the Canvas Student Mobile App. You should review your course site using the student app to see how it looks to them.

On your computer

  1. Go to your course site home page.
  2. Click Publish in the top, right-hand corner of the home page. The Publish button will turn green, noting that your course site is now published and viewable from the mobile app.
  3. Click Courses in the Canvas Global Menu.
  4. Follow the directions to customize your course list.
    • Make sure that the course site you want to view on the mobile app is marked as a "Favorite" on your course list.

On your mobile device
