Two things need to happen in order for students to receive a notification regarding page changes:

  1. At the bottom of the page is a checkbox called "Notify users that this content has changed". This checkbox must be checked upon saving.
  2. Students must have the "Course Content" notification turned on in their notification settings.. By default it is turned off

Both items 1 and 2 must be true in order for students to get the notification.

  1. I don't know how recent this post was. At the beginning of Feb. 2017, Canvas changed from sending a notification that a page was updated, that used to include just the first few lines, to sending the whole page, in garbled format. The purpose of the previous notification had been to alert recipients to check the actual site, not to clutter email inboxes. Canvas did not ask first, and they did not announce this. So I am sending no more notifications this way. (Typical example of how to get off of the office coffee-making chore by making bad coffee, where Canvas is the one assigned to coffee-making.)
