Notifications can help students stay on top of course assignments and updates. These notifications can be for new announcements, assignment updates, content added or changed in a course, updates in a discussion, new grades or upcoming quizzes. Students can customize these notifications to best suit their needs, choosing to receive a summary of activity or instant notifications over email or SMS.

TIP:
It is highly recommended to enable email or SMS notifications for new or updated announcements, assignments and quiz due dates, and newly released grades. Notifications for new content or posts in discussions are also recommended. Remember that you can disable or change your notifications settings at any time.
