Additional tools

In Canvas it is easy to integrate additional tools. At the moment a limited number of tools is already integrated in Canvas. See the list below for more information on the tools available. This list will surely grow longer in the future. If you have a request for a new tool please contact your faculty Canvas support.

Canvas App

Canvas has an app that is available for both Android and iOs phones. There is a teacher app as well as a student app. For teachers it is easy to use to grade or give feedback to submitted assignments. Students can do a lot on the app, like checking their calendar, consult shared files and announcements and submit assignments.

Tip: for teachers it might be interesting to download the app for students too, to check out what students can do in your course.

To download the Student app, go to: link to iOS app store & Google app store
