Student Notification Recommendations

Within Canvas @ Yale, you have specific notifications that you can modify to determine how frequently you receive email notifications from your Canvas @ Yale course site. For details about each notification setting, please refer to the vendor's Canvas Notifications documentation.

Notifications received from Canvas to your email address will come from "Course Name <>".
