I want to know how to ask my teachers questions over the email thing.
Hi ISABELLA RIGNANESE...
I believe what you're asking is about the Inbox / Conversations. As a student, you can find lots of Canvas Guides on how to use this part of Canvas by going here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-4121#jive_content_id_Conversations Also, there is this video tutorial: Communication (Students) (check out around the 2 minute 50 second mark).
Also...just a note about the term "e-mail". Canvas doesn't really have e-mail inside of the platform. It's commonly referred to as "messaging" or "conversations". I say this because in your own Canvas profile, you can choose how you want to receive notifications about certain events in Canvas. You can receive notifications via e-mail, text message, Twitter, etc. And, you can choose the frequency of those notifications. So, when you send a message from the Canvas Inbox to someone else, the person on the receiving end of that message may (but not always) receive a notification of that message via e-mail, or he/she may only receive notification of it via text. It's completely up to the user how he/she wants to get those notifications. The same would apply for your Canvas account, too. Here's a couple Guides if you want to look through them:
How do I add an additional email address as a contact method in Canvas?
How do I add a text (SMS) contact method in Canvas?
How do I add contact methods to receive Canvas notifications?
How do I set my Canvas notification preferences?
Hope this helps, Isabella!
