Love it, love it , love it


I 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!

Not so good as advertised


First the app keeps asking to write a review constantly in the first week I started classes but I wanted to wait till now. After three weeks I started to see the flaws.
For example when you are at the app on iPhone or iPad your calendar does not work, it shows as empty.
2 - you can't mark your assignments as done. For example if your professor upload an assignment and this assignment is instructions, videos to watch, reading and etc they will remain in your calendar as it's undone and that sometimes is confusing and annoying. Only multiple choice assignments will be write off of your calendar once you finish.
3 - you have to keep constantly re-loading the page and the Navigation on the app is really slow even if your internet is fast. For example let's say you have two classes to navigate between them you need you will have to keep reloading the page over and over as there is no back arrow to where you were so it's best to open a new window to work in two classes or more lol.
4 - slow slow slow overall, there is more but I don't remember right now. Hope they fix these issues.

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.
