Personalize Your Notification Settings
The default notification settings send frequent e-mails. You must be logged into the web version of Canvas in order to change these settings.
The suggested setting are to turn on the daily notifications (clock symbol) for "Announcements", "Grading", and "Submission Comment". All other options can be set to the X which turns off notifications. If you decide you would like more or more frequent information later, you can always adjust these settings.
The video to the right gives a general overview of how to navigate Canvas from the observer point of view.
