How do I create announcements?

Use the Communication tool to create announcements for individual courses or groups of courses.

To create announcements:

  1. Open Communication from the Main Menu.
  2. Click New Announcement in the toolbar; the To: field will automatically be populated with the current course(s).
  3. Click the To: field to see a dropdown of potential recipients (nothing appears if all potential recipients are already selected).
  4. Click recipients in the To: field to remove them.
  5. Specify your announcement's start and end dates; the announcement will disappear from the Announcements list on Home once the end date is reached.
  6. Compose your message and click Post.

We have occasion to make course announcements from domain administrator accounts in Brainhoney. In Buzz, we don't see the option to make a course announcement unless the user is enrolled as the teacher. Is there a way to make course announcements without having an enrollment in Buzz?

Hello Keoni,

In Buzz it is intended for admins to create Domain Announcements and for instructors to create course announcements. There is not currently support for an admin to create a course announcement unless they have an enrollment in the course and performing the action as an instructor.

Is there a way to make Announcements mandatory to be read by the recipients once they are logged into the UI?  This would be needed in both BrainHoney and Buzz.

Hello Jeff,

At this time there is not an option to force announcements to be read by the recipient. We'll flag this for inclusion in discussions for possible enhancements to the system.
