Learn@Illinois Moodle - Making Announcements with the Announcements Forum
Using the Announcements activity in your course is the best way to make an announcement to the whole class. By default, students are automatically subscribed so that posts are delivered to students' email addresses. Students do not have the ability to reply to the announcements, which prevents them from messaging the whole class. There is a 15 minute delay for all forum posts.
- Near the top of your course homepage, click Announcements.
- Click Add a new topic.
- Similar to the format of an email, fill in the "Subject" and "Message" fields.
- Review other settings.
- Click Post to forum.
