APS Application Tutorials

On the main APS website is an extensive collection of app tutorials for middle school students.

If you have issues with the Canvas app we recommend that students use Canvas in the Safari browser when working on the iPad. However, if the student is working on an assignment that requires students to write on a PDF, the student must use the Canvas app on the iPad.
