Canvas is built on open web standards and uses minimal instances of Flash, so most features are supported on mobile devices. With the growing use of mobile devices, instructors should build their courses with best practices for mobile users in mind.
You can access Canvas on your mobile device through any mobile browser. However, mobile browsers are not officially supported. We recommend using Canvas mobile applications for an improved user experience.
We are actively improving our native mobile applications to support as many Canvas features as possible. Instructure has two native mobile applications free for download on both phones and tablets. Please note that mobile applications are only supported in English at this time.
- Canvas by Instructure. This app is free and supports both iOS 7.0+ and Android 4.0+ devices. Depending on your device, not all Canvas features may be available on the app at this time.
- SpeedGrader™ App. This app is specifically designed for instructors and allows them to grade student submissions on the go. This app is also free and is currently only available for iOS 5.0+ tablets.
