Student Canvas Notifcations

Students can select to have certain Canvas notifications sent directly to their William James College email address.

First, you MUST verify your William James College email in Canvas by following these directions. 

  1. After you have verified your email, go to your Account in Canvas, then select Notifications. 

2. Update your notification settings to your personal preference.

Each notification is set to a default setting. To change a notification for a contact method, locate the notification and click the icon for the contact method [1].

To receive a notification right away, select the Notify immediately option [2]. These notifications may be delayed by up to one hour in case an instructor makes additional changes, which prevents you from being spammed by multiple notifications in a short amount of time.

To receive a daily notification, select the Daily summary option [3].

To receive a weekly notification, select the Weekly summary option [4]. The date and time of your weekly notifications are posted at the bottom of the notifications page.

If you do not want to receive a notification, select the Notifications off option [5].
