The Announcements tool allows for the delivery of messages to an entire class, to groups, or to specific sections within a class. Participants will see the Announcement message displayed in the Announcements area of their Home area, as well as within the course itself. These messages can be set to show immediately, or to show during specific dates. Email notifications can be sent to alert participants of the Announcement message.

  • To access this tool, select Announcements from the Tool Menu in the site.
