There are 2 different messaging systems for students and instructors in Canvas courses. For more information see the video above.
The 2 messaging systems are:
- Canvas messaging system
- Microsoft Office365 email
These 2 messaging systems do not talk to one another, meaning a message sent in one system will not show up in the other system. Therefore, to avoid communication headaches, it may be helpful to understand how instructors and fellow classmates plan to use these systems for your courses.
