In the Announcement screen, click on the Create Announcement button.
Announcements are made of two parts: the Subject and Message. Fill in the appropriate information to be displayed to students.
In the second part you can select a couple of options. The first is "Duration". If you select "Permanent", the announcement will always show every time a student enters the course. This should be reserved for critical announcements that need to be presented through the semester. If all announcements are permanent student may have to scroll to see the most current announcement or ignore them entirely. If you set up date restrictions, make sure to set up both start date and end date and you should select the date through calendar rather than enter it manually.
If you post an announcement about something specific in your course, you can also provide a Course Link to an item in your course. Click on the Browse button to open your course map.
In the course map, select the item you want to link.
Once you are finished, click on Submit to complete the process.
Click on the down arrow button, you can see two options: Edit and Delete. To edit the announcement, click Edit button; to delete the announcement, click Delete button.
