Schedule Course Announcements
We've added two new small, but helpful, features to the Announcements tool in CoursePlus.
First, you can now schedule announcements in advance. You can set a date in the future for the announcement and the announcement will not appear on your class website until the date and time you've selected. Previously, all announcements would appear immediately, as soon as you created them.
Second, you can now select the number of days for which you want the announcement to appear. Announcements can appear for 1 to 7 days. (An announcement that needs to appear for more than 7 days should really be added as a class email or go into the Discussion Forum.)
Hopefully these small improvements make announcements more useful for you in your classes!
