Create a global Announcements item
You create and manage global Announcements items the same as Announcements items in course offerings, with the following exception: Global Announcements items have the additional setting Show Only In Course Offerings. When you select this setting, a posting only appears on Course Home pages, not in the Announcements widget on My Home.
You must have the Announcements widget on the organization and/or course homepages for users to see Announcements items. Draft Announcements items at the organization level are invisible to instructors and learners.
- From the Admin Tools menu, click Global Announcements.
- Enter your Announcements item information.
- To display the announcement only on Course Home pages, not in the Announcements widget on My Home, select the Show Only In Course Offerings check box.
- To display author information (name and timestamp) in announcements you create or edit, select the Show Author Information check box.
Note: This option only appears if you have the Can Manage Author Information and Settings permission.
- Click Publish.
