The canvas calendar does not have a clear way to get notifications on your phone or computer for each assignment. A good example of how this might work is shown in the i-know chrome extension. The problem with the extension is that after we switch over to only using canvas it will no longer work. It only worked with the old ilearn.
The email notifications are not good enough for students to be able to keep up with school work. I would like to have a setting to be able to get a notification hours in advance of when the assignment is due. I would like to also get this through the canvas app.
