1. Check Mark: To receive notification right away. Delayed one-hour to capture all changes, which prevents multiple notifications at the same time.

2. Clock: Daily notification via email.

3. Calendar: Weekly notification via email.

4. Remove: Does not send notification for that item.

Note: Each set notification preference will automatically apply to all your courses. They cannot be set for each course individually.
