Communications with Students
Reaching out to your students electronically involves any or all of these platforms: USF’s email (Outlook), aka “Webmail” in the portal; The Canvas Inbox, and Canvas course announcements. In all cases, it is of utmost importance to advise students to set their Canvas notifications preferences to receive announcements or Inbox messages, at least daily. Students may set their notifications preferences by choosing “Account” at the top of their Canvas global navigation column, which is the brown vertical bar located at the left of the Canvas user interface, as shown in this 1 minute screencast.
The following resources explain the use of communications tools at USF.
