Course Announcements

The Course Announcements feature is a special kind of forum. It is a place where you can put important announcements that you want your students to see when they come to your course. For example an absence, change in schedule, or anything else you feel is critical. When students log in to MyCourses, a pop up window will appear with your announcement in it. They will not be able to view other pages until they have read the announcement.

To add Course Announcements to your course:


1. Turn Editing On

2. Add the block called "Announcements" from the drop down menu for adding blocks on the Course Homepage.

3. Once the Announcements block appears on your course, create an announcement by clicking on the "Add" link.

4. This will then take you to the set up page. Make sure to add a title, message and click 'Post to Forum'.
