Very useful and easy to use, but something’s to change

My school district changed from Google Classroom to Canvas, and although it was confusing at first, Canvas just outweighs Google Classroom 10 fold. The features for assignments is very organized and just better to look at than GS’s (Google Classroom’s.) If a teacher posts a rubric, not only are there the teacher’s comments, but it also describes how you lost points, got something wrong, etc. The export feature is a lifesaver 🙏🙏🙏. My school relies heavily on iPads and Notability. So the features practically Carrie’s my school. This is just a better alternative than GS. Here comes the part where I complain lol. One feature that can improved is editing your dashboard. I can’t tell you how many times I couldn’t find Modules, which is where I download my work or take a quiz/test. It would be so much easier if you could edit what options you have. Another editing feature that I think needs to be updated is the dashboard. Sure you can keep what classes you need on there, but being able to customize with your bell schedule or however you want will definitely improve. DEVELOPERS, PLEASE CONSIDER MY RECOMMENDATIONS. Not only will it increase your users, it will likely lead them to reccomend it to other teachers who reccomend it to their head of school or even the head of the school district. Thank you for reading this review and switch NOW! GOOGLE CLASSROOM NEEDS TO BE STOPPED! USE CANVAS!

The many benefits

I love the app, helps me find assignments quick has a tab for me to check my grades and to check if the teacher put any announcements if their is a substitute. This app has helped me better my education and when I graduate hopefully help me through college. The app has many benefits and not gonna lie almost a better platform than Google Classroom, it was great to keep in touch with my classmates but not to keep organized. Google Classroom just listed assignments by date not category, with Canvas it has modules when the teacher say what unit subject we are on it help my whole class find the assignment in less than a second. I approve this app and suggest that all schools use it, and for those who has a kid with a personal computer for their homework I suggest you sign your kid up you will see a great improvement in their grades if they struggle and helps with the syllabus if the parent has the app so they can check their child’s grades and they can help the child through the course and help study. I am rating this app as a freshman in high school and I promise it makes such a great learning experience and makes school a lot easier. I rate this app a million out of ten.

Lack of Safari support

My child was having problem with jpg loading on his school pages. At first, the jpg pictures were just more for the improvement of the site aesthetic so we didn’t bother. Then one day there is an image on his quiz that he was suppose to analyze and answer. He CAN’T see the image. The image won’t download. It was a timed quiz and he wasn’t able to get the teacher to email him the image on such a short notice. I reported the problem to Canvas and then started googling the issues online. It turned out that this is a known issue for YEARS. I am in disbelief that this has not/cannot be fixed. Safari is not a no name niche browser. It shocks me that Canvas, also not a no name small educational platform, has no solution to this. After several days, I got a respond from Canvas, actually the online school IT, to say just use Chrome. Really?!?! We use Safari because of Screentime parental control. I DON’T want to use Chrome. I didn’t use Chrome on the my computer (without any monitoring filter) and the jpg still didn’t load in all instances. Canvas, get it together and work out the issue with Safari! We used Schoology all last year and had ZERO issues. This is totally unacceptable for such a popular platform. As a user, there is no customer support to speak of. No way to contact them except to fill out a form. I wouldn’t use this platform if I am the school admin making a decision on what technology to use.
