The Announcements tool is a system widget located on your course homepage. It is used as a method of communicating with your students to relay messages, important events, and other updates.

Creating an Announcement:
Effective Pedagogical Practices
This is the first area students are presented with when they click on your course. We recommend to communicate with them often through the use of this tool, as well as utilize it to post important events, dates, and deadlines.
We recommend to begin your course with at least one News item, welcoming your class and introducing yourself.
Please let us know if you have any further pedagogical input for this tool.
