What is the Canvas Student App? 
According to the online Canvas Guides:

Canvas Student allows students to access their courses and groups using a mobile device. Students can submit assignments, participate in discussions, view grades and course materials. The app also provides access to course calendars, To Do items, notifications, and Conversations messages.  Canvas Student requires a Canvas account and is available for both Android and iOS devices.


To start using the Canvas Student app:

2.  Visit the app store for your device (available for Android 5.0 or later and iOS 10.0 or later).  Search for Canvas Student and it should come up in your app store search results (look for the blue Canvas logo like you see in the image at the top of this page).
