Using Canvas Inbox to Email Students
Teachers have access to all their JCampus classes with all students available to email at once, making communicating with them easy. In addition to receiving the message in Canvas, students also get a notification in Outlook when a Canvas Inbox email is received. Communicating through email is an opportunity to teach students email etiquette and strengthen their real-world capacity to communicate.
Access Canvas Inbox from the global navigation menu.
Click the pencil icon to Compose a Message.
Select the course you'd like to send an email to.
Click the box to send individual messages to each to avoid a Reply to All.
Click the user icon to select individual names.
Insert a Subject.
Attach files if needed.
Record a quick video or audio message if desired.
Click Send to send the message.

ADVENTURE
SUMMER
Thank you to all who joined us for a Summer Edtech Adventure.
We look forward to supporting you throughout the 2023-24 school year!
Here's what participants shared about their experiences.
The training was very hands on and engaging. I enjoyed the experience.
I have enjoyed this face to face training and time allowed to create products we can use for back to school and throughout the school year.
I enjoyed this training because the few questions I had left for Canvas were answered today with these ladies. Thank you again.
This was amazing and the time flew by so quick. I loved the hands on and our trainer was very knowledgeable.
Thank you all for taking your time to plan such an awesome event!!! Very organized, so friendly!! Thanks for going the extra mile!!
Your team is amazing! I have done several IMPACT trainings in my career, and this was the best ever. Helpful, patient, fun, encouraging, professional, are all characteristics of this training.
I really enjoyed the Midnight Madness. You did a great job organizing everything and it was exciting!
This was very informative, relevant and gave me so many ideas for how to implement for the upcoming year. I am super grateful for this training.
I enjoyed leaving the basics of how to use Minecraft Education and the printed help pages.
I LOVED how we were able to learn more about this topic! When I was in grade school, there weren't that many teachers that were concerned about SEL and mental and emotional health. Thank you so much for creating this course!
Excellent course! Thank you for all the hard work that you put into making your Canvas class. It really showed. I learned so much, and I’m looking forward to incorporating coding.
Thank you for making cyber safety a course. It is an important topic today, and the more people know and understand, the better they can protect themselves, students, and our network. Good job!
Great F2F and webinars so far this summer. So many relevant topics we can use and new things I didn’t know. Got lots out of today and I thought I was pretty good at using calendars. I use it for everything. Thanks!!
Thank you for all you do for us to be more successful!
