Announcements: Overview

What it does

The Announcements tool is used to inform site participants about current items of interest. Announcements can have multiple attachments, such as documents or URLs.

To see the announcements from all the sites to which you belong, in the menubar of My Workspace, click Announcements.

Key concepts

Sorting: You can sort announcements by subject, sender, access, or date.

Posting: Announcements are posted to a course, project, or portfolio site. Site owners and instructors can choose to have an announcement automatically sent via email to all site participants by using the "low" or "high" notification setting. For more information on managing email, see Tools for managing site email.
