I need to send a document to all the members of my online class for a group project. Is there a way to do so in Canvas? It seems I can only communicate with one person at a time and am not able to attach anything. Can anybody help?
Hello Allegra East...
Jason Griggs has provided you with great direction on how to message everyone in your course. He provided you links to the Instructor Guides, but here are links to the Student versions...which, as he mentioned, are very similar:
How do I send a message to all course users in the Inbox as a student?
How do I attach a file to a message as a student?
Finally, please check out my reply over in Sending email to students where I discuss the terminology "email"...something that Canvas does not have.
I hope this extra bit of information will be helpful to you, Allegra.
Hello Allegra East,
Canvas does offer an easy way to send a message to all the other students in your class. The instructions are for instructors, but the process should work for you as well.
Here are more detailed instructions about attaching files to a message in Canvas.
