Canvas - Conversations

In Canvas this is another method for you to communicate with your course classmates. This is similar to an email system but exclusively for Canvas.

  1. Open Canvas and from the blue global navigation bar select the Inbox icon. A window will open that resembles an email program.
    Navigation to Inbox
  2. To compose a new message select the Compose New Message icon at the top of the window. It will look like a paper and pencil icon.
  3. When the Compose Message dialog box appears, Select the course for the individual(s) that you wish to communicate with.
    Message body
  4. Once you select the course, you select the To field. The options are Instructor or Student. If you select Student a list of the students in the course will appear for you to choose from.
  5. You will then need to create a message Subject and text in the body. Additionally you can add a file or media from Canvas.
  6. Click the Send button when you are done.
  7. Messages that were sent to you will appear on the left hand side.
