The Activity Feed is a course homepage widget that allows instructors and learners to post messages visible to the entire class.
NOTE: To add the activity feed widget to your homepage you’ll need to make a copy of the homepage or have a custom homepage. To do so please see the How do I customize my course homepage? documentation first.

Add Activity Feed to a course homepage (includes instructions on how to edit the homepage):

We recommend using the basic homepage layout and adding the Activity Feed widget to the large panel on the left hand side. Ensure the large panel does not include other widgets. Widgets placed below the Activity Feed can become lost as the feed grows.
