Learn@Illinois Moodle - Making Announcements
Using the Announcements activity (formerly News forum) 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.
- Click on Announcements near the top of your course homepage.
- 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.
