How can I add an announcement for students to see?
This is an administrative tool; the portfolio administrator must set the system to allow a faculty member to use it. If you cannot use this function and would like to, contact your portfolio administrator.
In order to add an announcement for students, follow these steps:
- Click on the Announcements link
- Click on + Add Announcement
- Type in a Headline and a Body of the message in the appropriate text boxes
- Select a Begin Date (date when students will see the announcement) by typing it in the appropriate box or clicking on the calendar icon
- Select an End Date (date when the announcement will no longer be visible) by typing it in the appropriate box or clicking on the calendar icon
- Click on the check box for Send to Student's primary email now (if desired)
- Select which group(s) of students you want to get the announcement by clicking on the box next to the appropriate group(s)
- Click on OK
