When I post an Announcement, do the students get an email notification?

Jump to solution

Or do they learn of such a message only when visiting the Announcements page?

Hi nicho008@umn.edu‌,

Thanks for your question! Students may or may not get an email when an announcement is made, depending on how they have set their individual notification preferences. They will see a notification for an announcement on the Announcements page in the course and on their dashboard when the log in to Canvas.

If you plan on using announcements as a primary form of communication/notices, you could advise your students to update their notification preferences so they will be notified right away. They can find instructions on updating their notification preferences here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-10624-4212710344 

I hope this helps!

Emily
