Instructure Releases Canvas for Android
Students can now access Canvas courses from their Android devices

SALT LAKE CITY, Jan. 3, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Instructure has released a new Canvas Android app, "Canvas for Android," which enables mobile access to the Canvas learning platform from Android devices. Faculty and students can download the app for free from the Google Play store.


"The Canvas for Android app is designed to make it easy for faculty and students to stay connected to their courses, including courses from their institution or the Canvas Network," said Brian Whitmer, co-founder and chief product officer at Instructure. "We've always pushed information to Android devices through our email and text messaging notification feature, but now users can participate in their courses through a native app designed specifically for learning."

Canvas for Android provides an elegant way for students to access their Canvas To-Do list, Assignments, Calendar, Grades and more. It also enables them to read and compose messages using Canvas Conversations, a secure, built-in messaging system that connects participants in a course.

Since the initial launch of Canvas, Instructure has demonstrated its commitment to native apps for mobile devices. In 2011, the company released SpeedGrader for iPad, a powerful mobile grading app, and Canvas for iOS, an iPhone and iPad app with course functionality for students and instructors. With the release of Canvas for Android, Instructure is taking the first of many steps to bring a native Canvas experience to Android users.

"We recognize that the modern learner is mobile, and we believe a native mobile experience is critical to the learning experience," said Devlin Daley, co-founder and chief technology officer at Instructure. "We didn't decide after the fact to build mobile apps because it was a hip thing to do. We made an intentional decision to include mobile apps from the start – at no extra charge."

To learn more, visit the Canvas for Android page in the Google Play store.
