The Canvas Student Mobile App

This video gives an overview:

Though you may find it easier to access UNM Canvas on your phone when you are on the go, there are certain limitations to the mobile app that are important to keep in mind:

  • If you choose to use the mobile app for taking tests, we recommend that you pay attention to your Internet connection (especially important for timed tests). Only begin tests on a device with a stable, high-speed connection to the Internet. The UNM Canvas Support Team's ability to provide support for a wide variety of devices is limited, so we advise you to use caution, especially if electing to take a higher stakes exam on a mobile device.
  • Features that make use of External Apps (e.g., Kaltura Media Mashups and tests that require Respondus LockDown Browser) may not work properly. Mobile browsers are not supported.
  • Via the mobile app, only current term courses can be viewed on the Dashboard.
