Can I use Canvas to communicate with teachers?
Yes! You can use the Canvas inbox to send messages to teachers that are assigned to your student. The Canvas inbox is restricted to only Canvas accounts, so teachers, students, and parents will only find school related messages within their inbox. This will clean up communication between all parties as messages will not be lost in emails or misspelled addresses. As an observer, parents will only have access to message their student and the teacher. To see how to utilize the Canvas inbox feature, check out the following guides, “How do I send messages to a user in a course as a Student?” ** and “What is the Inbox?”
**Although this article is written towards the students, it can still apply to observer accounts.
