How do I communicate with my Instructor about Assignments?

Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). This lesson may include two images for specific steps to show the difference between the two designs. Unless otherwise indicated, the functionality and location of the components remain the same. The view available to you is determined by your institution.

There are various ways to communicate with your instructor about assignments. The instructor will specify what communication option is the best in the syllabus.
