Announcements are a great way to post important information for students. In this module, we will review the Announcements area of Canvas, different ways to view them, and how to create one.
The content of this page is covered in a video below. Click here to navigate directly to the video.
Please Note: Students will be notified within the course of an announcement posting. Additionally, if they have left their notification settings to default then they will receive an email to their Walden email address.
An alternate way to view announcements is from the Course Home Page. At the top center of the Course Home Page, the most recent announcement will be visible, (if an announcement has been made). Click the announcement's title to open it.
To create an announcement, navigate to the Announcements area of the course.
After clicking + Announcement, you will see this screen.
