So What is a Canvas Parent Observer Account?

A Canvas Parent Observer Account is an account designed to notify parents or guardians who wish to be a part of their student’s progress within the Canvas course. This account allows parents and guardians to see the classes, assignments, grades, and other content that pertains to their student’s learning within the Canvas environment. Another feature of this account is receiving custom automated email summaries of the assignment due dates, grade notifications, and course announcements overlooked by students.

Why Should I set up a Canvas Parent Observer Account?

A Canvas Parent Observer Account has numerous benefits that will assist your student’s learning by informing and allowing you to view their progress in their Canvas courses, such as the following:

  • Assignment due dates

  • Viewing participation within-group discussions

  • Teacher announcements

  • Assignment submissions

  • Grades on assignments

  • Teacher feedback on submitted assignments

  • Customizing automated email notifications

These benefits alone allow parents to be more informed about their student’s online education and assist you in problem-solving any roadblocks that your student may encounter.
