How do Parents follow their kids on Canvas?
Parents (observers) can link their Canvas account to their student’s account so they can see assignment due dates, announcements, and other course content. Observers can view the course content but cannot participate in the course.
- Observers will create a Canvas account by going to www.canvas.instructure.com.
- To observe a student, you must know the student’s Canvas username and password.
- The student must be enrolled in the course and must accept the course invitation before you can sign up to observe the student. If you receive an invalid username or password message during the signup process and the student’s credentials are correct, check with the student to verify that he or she has received and accepted the course invitation.
- These steps must be completed through the web version of Canvas. The observer signup process cannot be done through the mobile app.
