How do I globally email my students?
Hi larry dawson , and Welcome to the Canvas Community!
I am not sure what you mean by "globally" in this question, but Canvas does not have email functionality. Canvas has a messaging system called Inbox (or Conversations), and that system is designed to send messages only within Canvas and only to the members of a course. So you can send messages using the inbox to all members of a course, then send the same message (copy/paste) out to the members of the next course.
You can learn more about Inbox in the Conversations chapter of the Instructor Guide.
If you are looking for an email solution, I would suggest talking with your school's IT folks. One school that I work at creates Outlook distribution lists for all courses, which makes it quite easy for faculty to send out pre-term welcome/get started messages to their students.
I hope this helps,
Hello, larry dawson Thank You for posting your question. I, too, would like to welcome you to the Community! We are glad you're here! I've marked Kelley's response as "Correct" because he has given you some great help here. I would like to piggy-back off of his response only to add some additional Guides for you to look at ... which you can find in this topic that I responded to about a year ago. I hope this additional information will be of help to you, Larry.
