Communicating with students by email is easy with Canvas Inbox. It enables teachers to send an email to all students in a course or select individual students within a course. Teachers can include attachments or even record a quick audio or video message. Students receive a notification in Canvas and in Outlook. Communicating by email is convenient for teachers since all students are already grouped by course in Canvas, and it is a skill that benefits students in the classroom and beyond.
3 Canvas Tips to Streamline Digital Teaching & Learning
Choose Course Modules for Course Home Page
If you use modules to organize content for students and want them to have a streamlined way to access them, you can choose to have the course home page be course modules. This eliminates the need for a home page and minimizes the number of clicks students make to get to your content.
From the course Home Page, select the Choose Home Page button.
Select Course Modules.
Click Save.
Use Inbox to Email Students by Course
Click on Inbox icon.
Either use Search for the course that has the students you want to email or click the pencil icon to Compose Message and then Select Course.
Insert or Select Names.
Insert Subject.
Type email body information.
Attach files or Record a message.
Click Send.
Add Announcements to the Course Home Page
Teachers who use Canvas Announcements can add up to 15 of the most recent the course Home Page - whether they use a Page or Modules as the Home Page. This minimizes the number of clicks for a student to find this information.
In the course menu, select Settings.
Under the Course Details tab, scroll to the bottom to find more options.
Select Show recent announcements on Course home page. Use the drop-down to select the number to show, up to 15.
Click Update Course Details.
