How to Start a Conversation in Inbox and BCC Students

Purpose: Messages to students or faculty should start in the Canvas INBOX to ensure proper communication is made and records of messages are received and stored. In addition, to avoid privacy issues on group message responses, instructors are encouraged to BCC recipients. BCC’ing is best when instructors require a private response from a student, and would like to avoid a “reply all” which allows every recipient on the same message to view responses.
