WHAT IS CANVAS?
Canvas is a Learning Management System (LMS), where your student's online learning actually takes place. Students can take quizzes, tests, do homework and watch lessons.
Canvas has the ability for parents to act as a student observer. You now have the ability to see what exactly is going on in your child's classes. Oberservers are linked to one or more students; while you cannot submit course work on their behalf, you can see grades, assignments, events and any course interactions.
HOW DO I BECOME AN OBSERVER?
STEP 1: GENERATE A PAIRING CODE
You can sign up as an observer by sitting with your student and following the steps outlined in the web link below. Click the Canvas icon below to access the instructions: How do I generate a pairing code for an observer as a student?
