For students who don't have access to their computer as often as they would like, there is an application that will make their daily life much easier: Canvas Student!
Available free of charge in around 30 languages, Canvas Student is designed for students and teachers. They can consult educational content (course materials, notes taken, corrections, syllabus...) on their smartphone whenever and wherever they want. They can also take a quiz or complete a survey.
Canvas Student facilitates agility during group projects thanks to its Gantt chart and calendar for organising group work sessions. A messaging system is also available for quick communication with a classmate or teacher.
Users can log in from a PC to upload (or download) work created with Windows Office as a Powerpoint presentation. The application can be coupled with a cloud storage system to seamlessly transfer documents from a PC to a smartphone and vice versa.
Using Canvas, the user can enter the details of their accounts created in other applications. They can then organise video-conferences with Zoom or access personal information contained in their establishment's computer system.
Canvas Student works with the latest versions of all web browsers, including those designed for higher education such as Respondus Lockdown Browse. Smartphone owners using Android or iOS can download Canvas from Google Play or the App Store.
