With Canvas now fully implemented, you’ll find one more use for your Google Apps account… I should say your Emerson Google Apps account (google.emerson.edu), not your personal Gmail account.
We’ve been busy testing how the two play together when used at the same time, within the same browser, and we feel it can be a bit convoluted. To simplify your life a bit, we recommend either:
a) opening Canvas in a different browser than what you check your Gmail in, or
b) simply logging out of your personal Gmail account before you log into Canvas.
Both of these will save you a lot of frustration if you decide you want to use the collaboration tools available in Canvas. As always, feel free to call the HelpDesk at x8080 if you have any additional questions.
