This redesign aims to solve the following key user pain points that are unique to the mobile experience:
Key course information is hard to find: because of how the app is organized, course details such as classroom locations, assignment details, etc, are not easily accessible. My research shows that for a mobile app to be successful with students, they should be able to access their course information in a simple and quick manner.
Keeping track of multiple assignment due dates is tedious: The current structure of the app makes it confusing to view individual due dates for projects as this function is separated into two different tabs.
App interface is outdated: Feedback from users kept pointing out that the current app interface for Canvas Mobile not only felt outdated, but that it wasn’t designed visually to best assist users.
