How can students report sick through Canvas? Now, teachers can mark them as such using Attendance, but it would be nice if a student could do it herself, to let the rest of the class/group/teachers know.
There is one simple way, the students could send an Inbox message to the instructor, then hope the instructor reads it.
Otherwise there are only work-rounds. However, I have one work-round that would likely work even better than the Inbox - create a Google form for students to post their sick-calls on. You could even use the Redirect Tool to make that "sick Call" form a menu item in your classroom.
