Images and Videos of Canvas Announcements
About this Tool
Announcements are designed to allow instructors to broadcast information to all members of a course or to all members of sections within a course. Announcements allow you to post interesting course-related topics and to communicate with your students about course activities. Students may be able to reply to announcements, but replies are not considered to be a conversation and do not appear in the Conversations Inbox.
Key Features for Teaching and Learning
- Broadcast information. Announcements allow you to broadcast information to all members of a course or to all members of sections within a course.
- Alert students to immediate changes. Use Announcements to let students know about time-sensitive events such as school closing due to inclement weather or a reminder to prepare for that big test.
