Home Page / Notifications

Notifications are sent to everyone who is enrolled in a course including instructors, teaching assistants, and students. Both instructors and students can choose their own notification settings through the My Places section of Bb. Some features, such as the Announcement tool will override user notification settings.  

From My Places, you can manage notification settings for all of the courses you are enrolled in. When an event occurs in the system (such as an assignment being created, submitting a survey, or an overdue test), the Notification System informs you of what you need (and want) to know using one or more of available notification methods.

The first and most important thing you need to understand about this system is that all enabled notifications are generated automatically whenever their associated event occurs. For example, when you create an assignment and makes it available, the system automatically creates the appropriate notifications, and delivers it to students.
