Canvas Status Update:
2/28/2017>Many users unable to access Canvas due to AWS Outage.
 We are confident users are not impacted by any further issues with accessing Canvas at this time. However, we are continuing to monitor as we see about a 1.5 hour delay in notifications being sent: Throughout the incident today, we've had a queue of Canvas notifications building, to be sent to users once AWS was up and running again for the affected region. We started sending those notifications again around 3:18 pm MT, but there is still a large queue of notifications. This may keep users from receiving those until an hour or two after they normally would have appeared.
