It is such a great way to contact your teachers on the go or your classmates and stay connected regardless of where you are. PATRICK LEE: Even when I'm sitting at my computer sometimes I'm scrolling through Canvas for my own courses on my phone, because in many ways the functionality is better and more seamless there than it is on the computer and it's more immediate as well. You know I know and the students know that they can just pull out their phone and get to whatever information they need in a matter of seconds. EDLYN DE OLIVEIRA: I think that being able to provide this instant connectivity has transformed teaching truly. The accessibility to that has just been it's really brought a lot of equity. I think for our students to be able to do remote learning.
