Steps in other themes: Turn editing on > Add a block > Latest news

  • Instructors and administrators can rename it.
  • All participants in the course are subscribed by default. Usually, only teachers and administrators can post to this forum.
  • The standard student role may not post new announcements or reply to announcements.
  • It is usually used for important announcements like due date reminders, changes in the syllabus, and class cancelations.
  • If the Latest news block is added to themes other than Snap, users see a list of the posted announcements in the sidebar.
