How can I download the Canvas app?

When using a mobile device to access Canvas, the Canvas Teacher 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 to 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 there, you can follow the steps that are prompted from your device.

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 all your courses.
