To post an announcement in a course

First click announcements on the course toolbar on the left of the screen

You will be taken to the Announcements page. From there click the “Create Announcement” button.

Name the announcement on the subject line. Type your announcement content in the message text box.

You can set a date restriction if you want the announcement to be available only after and/or until a certain date. To post immediately select Not Date Restricted.

If it is a class cancelling announcement or something equally important select the Email Announcement option. Only select this option if it important that the student reads the announcement as soon as possible.

If needed click Browse to pull up the course menu. Select an item in the course to link directly to it in the announcement.

Submit when finished
