Announcements in Canvas
The Announcements section of Canvas will be used to post general messages, reminders, and other pertinent course information that is relevant to all students. In addition to receiving notifications of new announcements upon logging on to Canvas, all students are required to enable real-time (i.e. ASAP) notifications for course Announcements to their respective Baylor University email address. Specific instructions for modifying Canvas notification preferences can be found at https://guides.instructure.com/m/4212/l/710344-how-do-i-manage-my-canvas-notification-settings-as-a-student.
