Your institution and instructor control which tools are available. If this tool is not available, your institution or instructor may have disabled it.

Course members can view important messages from instructors in the My Announcements module or through the announcements tool. As a default module on the home page or My Institution tab, announcements are typically one of the first areas you see when accessing your course. When you click an announcement link, you are taken to the main Announcements page. Announcements are organized by:

  • Institution
  • Courses and Organizations
  • View All

How to View Announcements

  1. In the My Announcements module on the home page or My Institution tab, click an announcements link.


  2. On the Tools panel, click Announcements.
