"Canvas Parent," a separate application designed to work with Canvas, enhances the potential for parents to engage in their children's education. Parents can review upcoming or past assignments, check on grades, and receive course announcements.
Canvas Parent can be used by anyone who creates an account, has been added to Canvas with an Observer role, or has signed up as a parent using the web browser.
Access to Canvas Parent is managed by the student's institution. Users who use the Canvas Parent app can be blocked from using the app at any time. Canvas Admins can manage users in the Canvas Parent app using Canvas Parent Tools.
Parents can use the Canvas Parent app on all iOS and Android devices.
