Assignments & Attachments

First, I'm a PT faculty member who does all my teaching work on my home computer. I've never used Canvas for students to submit assignments (they just send me an attachment through our college email system)...but for the last couple of semesters, my computer has gotten gummed up with viruses I suspect I've picked up by having to click on their attachments. I have a fairly robust virus protection program, but nasty goobers can still slip through. Here are my questions:

  1. If I have students submit their documents through Canvas, am I better protected against viruses?
  2. Can I still make contemporaneous comments, corrections, etc. on their submitted papers as I can when I download their emailed attachments?

Thanks so much!
