You can access your Oregon Tech Canvas classes on your mobile device by downloading the app from your app store. The mobile app will work on any Android device, iPhone or iPad. Here are the steps to set up the app:
- This Mobile guides page from Canvas has links to the guides for downloading the student app.
- After you have successfully installed the app, open it and a click the "Find my school" button. Type "Oregon Institute of Technology" in the box. It will display the school's name before you even finish typing the name. Click our school's name to select it.
- Explore your classes to see what type of information is available in each class and how it displays. Note that some material may not be viewable on your mobile device.
- The next time you open the app, you shouldn't have to select your school again or enter your login information unless the app was recently updated.
Classes not listed? If the term hasn't started, you will not see your classes yet. Just like the full version of Canvas, you will have access to your classes on the first day of the term.
Some class material may not be accessible on your mobile device. Do not rely only on your mobile device to access your Canvas class. You will need a full computer to participate in your Canvas class.
Do NOT take tests using a mobile device. Some tests will not even open on a mobile device. Some tests have detailed images that would be impossible to view on a small mobile device. Even if you were successful in opening a test on your mobile device, a wireless connection is more likely to drop in the middle of a test and kick you out. You should always use a computer that is physically plugged into an internet connection for the most reliable service. Even a laptop should be plugged in rather than using a wireless internet connection.
** Oregon Tech does not provide technical support for setting up or troubleshooting the Canvas apps on your mobile device. We will ensure that the mobile program is working, but each person is responsible for configuring their device. Oregon Tech does not guarantee that the app will indeed work with all of the above devices.
