Use the Announcements tool to create announcements for individual courses or groups of courses.
To create announcements:
- Select the Announcements tool from the Main Menu.
- Select New Announcement in the toolbar.
- The To: field is automatically populated with the teacher's current course(s). Open the To: field to see a dropdown menu of potential recipients and select the box next to desired recipients.
- Specify your announcement's start and end dates; the announcement will disappear from the Announcements list on Home pages once the end date is reached unless you check the Display indefinitely box.
- Compose your message using the Rich Text Editor. Attach images, videos, or hyperlinks to announcements if needed.
- Select Post.
Students view course announcements from their Home page as well as the Course Home page the announcement was created for.
