Enabling notifications

Notifications is a tool that allows you to enable an email alert when there are new items in your course! You can set up a notification to alert you about new content items, news/announcements, and even posted grades!

Each user is responsible for setting up email notifications for their courses - it is not something Instructors will be able to do for them.

Note: Students will still be able to receive emails sent from instructors despite their custom notification settings.
