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 <firstname.lastname@example.org>".
For instructions on how to change your notification preferences, please refer to the help articles below. Remember that Course-level notifications override account level notifications.
