Use the Communication tool to create announcements for individual courses or groups of courses.
To create announcements:
- Open Communication from the Main Menu.
- Click New Announcement in the toolbar.
- The To: field is automatically populated with the current course(s). Open the To: field to see a dropdown of potential recipients and click the box next to desired recipients.
- Specify your announcement's start and end dates; the announcement will disappear from the Announcements list on Home once the end date is reached unless you check the Display indefinitely box.
- Compose your Subject and message.
Students receive a notification in the Communications icon in their toolbar and on their Home page next to Announcements.
