I am proposing this idea to have notification icons or badges in Canvas on the left side panel where we see access to the announcement, inbox, assignments, grades, and more, NOT in the Canvas app on the phone, because it already has that.
I am talking about the Canvas we use through our School's website on a laptop/computer.
Adding the icons or badges next to the announcement, inbox, chat, discussion board, and any means of communication.
This will help the students and instructors know there are messages, comments, or new posts that need to be read. So often, students may think there is no announcement or anything, Because, in this world of technology, we rely on notifications to help us know there is something that we need to see and read.
