How can I download the Canvas app?

When using a mobile device to access Canvas, the Canvas app is recommended. Using a phone, iPad or tablet browser will yield pages that are not easily navigable and may have issues displaying pages properly.

Go to the Apple or Android app store and download the Canvas application to your mobile device. You can search “Canvas by Instructure”. Download and open the Canvas application. Next, type “Stanford” in the search box. From here, you can follow the steps.

You will be taken to the authentication window where you can log in with your SUNet credentials. A message requesting access to your account will appear. Just click the ‘log-in’ button. Once logged in, you will see a display of all your courses.
