You can create an announcement that tells the student what they will be doing for the week, gives them a course update, or advises them that you are finished grading a specific assignment. Announcements are helpful as students see them in the course and are more likely to check them first than review Course Messages.
- Go into your course.
- Click on the Announcements link.
- Click on Create Announcement
- Enter the Subject and Message
- Select the option for duration and if you want a copy sent to the student via email.
