The "Canvas Teacher" app

With the app "Canvas Teacher", you as a teacher can be active in the course via the phone and, among other things, send and receive messages. You can convey results and assessments and time the publication of certain material. However, KTH does not give support for the app.

Problem logging in to KTH in the app?

Log in with the school name canvas.kth.se

KTH's Canvas redirects from the old web address "kth.instructure.com" to the new "canvas.kth.se".
This may cause problems in the app, but it can be solved quickly.

To log in to the Canvas student app or Canvas teacher app:

  1. Press the "Find my school" button on the home page in the app.
  2. Enter "canvas.kth.se" and press "Next". Note! Do not search for KTH.
  3. Log in as usual.

Possibilities

The app allows you, as a teacher, to participate in a course via mobile, but it cannot replace the web version of Canvas. The app works best for managing and assessing already created course material.

Examples of possibilities in the app:

  • Grade assignments.
  • Manage assignments.
  • Create and manage announcements.
  • Create and manage discussions.
  • Create and manage pages.
  • Create and manage files.
  • Use the student view.

The app is regularly updated. Find the latest information about the functions on the page Canvas Teacher Mobile Features (community.canvaslms.com) .

Limitations

The app has certain limitations that are important to know if you plan to use it. The technical limitations are the following:

  • A KTH account is a requirement to use the app.
  • KTH does not provide support for the app. All questions and support are managed by those who develops and updates the app: Instructure. You can find links to the guides at the end of this page.

In addition, the app also lacks the following functions:

  • Assignment Creation.
  • Calendar.
  • Gradebook.
  • Graded Discussions.
  • Modules Creation.
  • Outcome Creation.

The app is regularly updated. Find the latest information about the functions on the page Canvas Teacher Mobile Features (community.canvaslms.com) .
