Planning Communication

Planning the methods of communication that will run between students and the instructor throughout the semester will make communication run smoothly.

Tips for optimal communication planning:

  • Choose one route with which to communicate announcements to students (email, announcements feature on Canvas, Canvas inbox, etc.)
  • Notify students at the beginning of the semester of which method you will use
  • Remind students to turn on their notifications for the chosen method of communication
