Canvas Observer Guides:
  1. Signing up for an Observer account
  2. Generate Student Pairing Code
  3. Linking Student to Observer
  4. Canvas Parent App (iOS)
  5. Accessing Canvas Announcements using Safari
Once you have signed up and created a Canvas Observer account, here are the basic steps on pairing your Observer account with a Student account using a pairing code:

  • Open the Canvas Parent App (iOS)
  • Tap the menu icon (three horizontal lines on the top-left)
  • Tap Manage Students
  • Tap the + sign at the top-right

If you have multiple students at Alemany, you can repeat the steps above to observe additional students.
