Announcements are a useful way to communicate with students in your Canvas classes in a way that pings the student with a notification if they have notifications configured. Here are a few useful links to help teachers make announcements and for students to ensure their notifications are properly configured to receive them.
- Make an announcement in Canvas
- Configure notifications for teachers
- Configure notifications for students
- Configure contact methods
Most often you will be making announcements to your class - either the whole class, or an individual section of your class. If you need to make an announcement to the an entire grade level, or the entire upper or middle school divisions, please use the MS Info or US Info Canvas pages.
