You can send a welcome message or other important announcement to your students right from your Canvas course. This ensures all students in the course receive your message. Students can view announcements directly in Canvas, the Canvas Student App, or via their Cal State LA email.
Message an individual student instead of the whole class using Conversations.
View messages received from students in your class.
When grading, you can send students a message to remind them to submit their assignments or to come visit you during office hours to discuss their progress in the course directly from the Gradebook.
In addition to providing a grade, send students written feedback right from within SpeedGrader.
