Canvas for Tablets and Mobile Devices
Most Canvas features will work and give the best user experience with the web browsers installed on the devices; however, mobile browsers are not officially supported by Canvas. Canvas has both iOS and Android mobile apps available (and different apps for student or faculty functionality), though the mobile apps are very limited and may not be able to display all content, assignments, quizzes, etc. Using a web browser on a desktop or laptop computer (not a tablet or mobile device) is highly recommended for most activity, most importantly when viewing videos, taking quizzes, or submitting assignments in Canvas.
Test Your Connectivity and Equipment
UM-Dearborn has created a public Canvas demo site for faculty and students to verify device internet connectivity and compatibility with Canvas and some of our integrated services.
When you learn online at UM-Dearborn, you'll enjoy the company of other learners from around the world! Most due dates and times in syllabi and Canvas announcements will be in Eastern Time. If you are not located in Eastern time, you can find the adjustment for your time zone, in addition to adjusting your time zone inside of Canvas so that assignment pages and quizzes will show the correct due date/time for your location.
