More Announcements on the Course Home Page
Announcements are a handy way to let everyone in the class know about something important as soon as they arrive on the online course home page. Previously, only one announcement was displayed on an online course home page at a time. Announcements normally stay visible for five days from the posting of the announcement. If you posted another announcement before those five days expired, however, the previous announcement (or announcements) would disappear from the course home page.
We've changed the announcements tool so that you can now have up to five (5) announcements dispalyed on an online course home page at a time. This means that if you post an announcement on Monday, another on Tuesday, and another on Wednesday, all three announcements will be visible until the first announcement "expires" five days after it was posted.
If you have feedback on the announcements tool and how it works, we'd love to hear it!
