How/can I forward an email from Outlook to my students in one of my classes? I often get announcements of events I want to share with my students. Is there a way to share through the course messaging or ... ?
There really isn't a way to forward a message to your class in Canvas from an external email system. In cases like you describe I would probably create an Announcement in the course and then Copy/Paste the message into the Announcement. I like this method because not only will it send students the Announcement by email; it's also still contained inside the course making it easier for them to find at a later time. You could use the copy/paste method to send it out using the InBox on the left side of Canvas and that would work; but I still prefer the announcement option so that the information can also be found inside the course.
Thanks Rick. I do that when I can. Frequently they are the body of an email representing a web page. I can share the url address with students, but I think it would be more effective if they saw the whole thing in one glance. I tried pasting it in and the message receiving technical end of Canvas wouldn't take it as it was designed in the email. Just a lot of jumbled text.
I have written the sponsors of this event and asked if they have a pdf. Too much trouble in the end!!
