Note About Canvas Notifications

Notifications in Canvas can be set up in two ways, and you can choose either or both of these kinds of notifications:

  • Push notifications to all devices that have the Canvas Student App installed on it
  • Email notifications to your MTECH-issued student email

Make sure your notifications from Canvas do not go to your spam folder if you are using email notifications. Notifications(at)instructure(dot)com is the email that sends all notifications from Canvas, so make sure it isn’t blocked on any filters.
