I really enjoyed my time there, getting ready to start my career has been very exciting for me. I enjoy all the things that I’ve learned, all the people that I met, I really feel that I found my career. I think all the staff members that help me along the way the students that help me along the way. I truly believe this is what I want to do and for that I think you.
Dashboard Grid view 1/5
Please add the tile view option for the courses on the dashboard.
A students true friend 5/5
Essential to organizing my class load, I’m so grateful for the weekly to-do list and the calendar!
Please go back to grid view for dashboard 1/5
I have no idea why the would make the dashboard a list it makes no sense.
The new layout is atrocious.
Takes forever to load, and of bugs that get in the way of learning. One that keeps coming up is an assignment not going through when you hit the submit button, despite a message assuring you that you can close the app while it loads and it will submit. I’ve had assignments I submitted on time load for hours, if not days, and end up being late because they didn’t load correctly. This issue is significantly worse on mobile.

Having it means I have to do work on snow/sick days which I hate lol
Bring back grid view 1/5
Canvas is fine however this last update is not!! Change it back to grid view OR give me the option to change it. I can no longer see what all of my class grades are on the front page. I should not have to scroll to find my classes.
Great for travel 5/5
By Good shine
I subversives have to travel but this makes it easy to get all my classes f f one while on a road-trip
Changed format 2/5
They changed the format of the dashboard and you can only see one class at a time and that is very irksome. I need it go back to being two columns.
A college student’s dearest frenemy 5/5
Canvas has been the bane of my college career. Those little “Exam _ has been graded” notifications are scary enough to give me a heart attack, the To-Do list is almost but never empty, and never mind the bazillion emails I get from messages/discussion posts/updates that are done within my courses! Still, it’s simple to navigate and easy to use once you’ve grown used to it. It’s better than Blackboard and Moodle that’s for sure. I think I’ll miss it when I finally graduate this year.
I want to see all of my classes at once on dashboard. Terrible update
There should be an option to have the classes on a grid display or stacked display. And you aren’t able to add yourself to groups for classes unless you’re on a laptop/desktop.
New UI is Awful 1/5
Please at least add an option to switch back to the old UI, I can only see 4 classes on the screen now instead of the 8 I could before
Recent update 1/5
The new layout of the dashboard that does not allow for side by side courses unnecessarily wastes screen space.
Great Stuff!! 5/5
I love this app as a college student
Mostly good, but displaying you’re enrolled classes in a grid rather than list was much better 4/5
Please change this back. I am enrolled in many classes and not having to scroll made so much more logical sense. Do you want to see all your grades and one glance, that’s impossible now.
Absolutely crap 1/5
Stupidest app I have ever seen students have to log in and don’t know how.
New UI isn’t good 3/5
The grid view was much better, please add an option to switch between the two. Other than that, good app. Also there’s a strange bug where I get 3x as many notifications. (Instead of 1 I get 3)
Changed layout 1/5
I normally memorize my classes when they are in a grid style but now they are in a list where I have to scroll. That was not a good change.
Please make Canvas more efficient 3/5
As a student, I way prefer Google Classroom for one main reason: it’s easy. Canvas is honestly way too complicated and each class is navigated in a different way. On the computer, which is a school Chrome book, it is ridiculously slow compared to google classroom, which is fast and efficient. I shouldn’t need to press a million buttons just to get to an assignment, nor should I have to wait for a page to load for me to be able to start an assignment. I, along with many other students, have complained about Canvas being very inefficient. The modules and assignments tab shouldn’t even exist if it were up to me. I would just have a main feed for the whole class and that would be filled with announcements and assignments like google classroom. Simplicity will make online learning 1000x easier because using Canvas was such a pain. I will give the app designers some credit for making the iPhone app smooth and more friendly, but it’s still full of so many links that aren’t necessary that it’s easy to miss an assignment if you don’t check everywhere possible, which by the way, isn’t a problem with Google Classroom.
Please add dark mode 4/5
Does what I need it to do, but when I’m spending hours on my screen I would appreciate not being blinded when I need to open up the app.
Its for school.
By Lebron The Ledgen
Well, it’s for school so yea
Deletes marked up notes 1/5
Canvas keeps glitching, freezing, and deleting my notes lately. Please fix this ASAP.
Two Things 4/5
It would be 5 stars if dark mode was added and you change the layout back to grid view. The list view does not work, and dark mode has been a suggestion for many years.
Yusss 5 stars are deserved 𑁍 5/5
This app literally saved my life. Quarantine without canvas would kill me. Thank the lords this app was created
Literally spams you 1/5
By duck war
From about a year ago I’ve been receiving multiple notifications for the same thing happening. I thought this would be fixed but instead they decided to increase the amount of notifications!!! Now I get about 8 notifications for one event! What is this madness ?
Please Go Back To Grid View!!! 2/5
The new update moved the courses into a list view and I cannot stand it. It was way more accessible in Grid view and now i have to scroll down to access my classes. Is this ADA compliant? Grid view is more accessible and disability friendly, list view is NOT. Please give us the option to change it!!!
Change the layout of courses back！ 1/5
new UI is trash. If you change it, I change my rating
Updated issue 5/5
After the updated, the dashboard car view became strange which is not similar with the preview in the app download page.
App Continues to Crash 1/5
I just downloaded the app, my OS on my iPad and iPhone are completely up to date, as well as the app itself. Yet it continues to crash and just completely shut down. I’m not sure what’s going on with it, but I restarted my devices, completely restarted the app and still the same thing is happening.
Not a fan of the update 5/5
I would like to be able to choose whether or not my classes are stacked on top of one another in a single column or not. I prefer my classes in two columns like before so I may view more than one at a time in the app. Please correct this!! Also, all notifications for the app are turned on, but i am not notified of announcements! I have to manually check every day to keep up with each classes announcements, please correct these issues!!
My teachers were like I wanna do the thing with the work and I said no so they gave me a bad grade. I will change to five stars if canvas will make my grade a 100 accept French bc French 🇸🇩🇸🇩🇸🇩🇸🇩🇹🇼🇹🇯🇺🇸🇹🇯🇺🇿🇻🇺🇹🇯🇹🇯🇹🇯🇹🇯🇺🇾🇻🇺🇺🇾🇹🇴🇻🇺🇹🇴🇹🇯🇻🇦🏴🇹🇯🇻🇺 is on google classroom so that’s why I have bad review for the google classroom but they aren’t picky about reviews so I think they shut up.
Full of bugs 1/5
Completely buggy and full of errors
iPhone App Fine, iPad Version a Disaster 3/5
I’m not sure I’ve ever had such a varying experience with an app from iPhone to iPad as I have with Canvas. When using it on my phone, everything works and loads as it should, with very few problems. However, the iPad version, the one I more often use, is a complete train wreck. This version is riddled with so many bugs that it is nearly unusable in many circumstances. The course modules, for example, simply do not load every time I attempt to check them, and when they do load, it only displays a couple of them. The assignments tab also has never worked. Unlike the modules and assignments tabs which display error messages when attempting to display, the Zoom tab for all my classes simply doesn’t work at all, so the app doesn’t even attempt to load the zoom link, and I’m left using Zoom on my phone, which I vastly dislike. The app doesn’t need to look good. It does, however, need to work.
No email 3/5
I have plenty of emails on the passport cc account. They don’t show I’ll on my Canvas app. What’s with it?
Whew,,, this is a bit more challenging than I believed;)
Great app, but 2 column rows please 4/5
Customization on the home screen would be nice so people could switch it back to the 2 column rows.
New Layout 1/5
The new layout is terrible and unpractical. Having the option to switch to a different layout is fine, but forcing it on your users does not work.
By Sage! :>
I'm in middle school and this app saved my life, all my assignments are on here
You told me to 1/5
By pokemon buddy
You told me to keep rating it so I did
It’s a good app but… 4/5
The videos on the app don’t play correctly
Did not like it 1/5
Google classroom wipes 1/5
By Jerome 583
Google classroom>canvas in every way. I don’t understand how an app can be so hard to understand, manage, and navigate. This app is just a ripoff of google classroom and should not be used by teachers in any field of education. Sincerely the one and only
Canvas for student 1/5
it is so confusing and hard for me to learn
Changes in dashboard layout 5/5
I need the option to switch between list and grids view in the dashboard. The current update puts the courses in list view.
