I cannot find the command in the menu of CANVAS to e-mail students. Please do not refer me to the CANVAS guide - as always - is completely useless. Any help is appreciated. Thanks
Hello Patrick Hecking andWelcometo the Canvas Community! I am sad to hear that you found the 17 separate guides for Instructors on Conversations unhelpful. I have always found them to be quite helpful, and normally I would recommend someone to start with the first of these guides, How do I use Conversations as an instructor?
Perhaps, in lieu of the guides, you could share more information about why and how you are attempting to send messages to students, and how far you are able to get and what complications or questions you are experiencing at that point. From there, we could try to assist you from where you are.
You can use the Inbox to email students within the Canvas system. This is in the left sidebar.
I will add to the excellent advice provided by Adam Williams and Shannon Lynch that Canvas does not have email functionality. Instead, Canvas has a messaging system call Inbox or Conversations intended to be used within Canvas to facilitate communication between the members of a course.
Also, having used and administered four different LMSs before Canvas, I find the Canvas Guides amazing by comparison.
