You will need to click the box at the bottom of the screen that says: “Notify users that this content has changed” before you click "Save."  Otherwise, Canvas will not send an email notification.  PLEASE NOTE: even if you do check this box, students may or may not get a notification.  This depends on the notification preferences they have set.  The default notification setting is for them NOT to receive notifications that course content (like pages and assignments) have changed.  They have to actively go into their notification settings and turn on the setting to be notified of changes to course content.

  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.)
