Using the Announcements (News) Tool
The Announcements tool (previously known as the News tool) enables you to create news items that help communicate course updates, changes, and new information to your users quickly and effectively. Since My Home or Course Home is the first page that users often see when they log in or access their courses, the News widget is a good area for displaying important information.
The following short videos will introduce you to some of the basic “How-To’s” with respect to the Announcements tool.
