Use the News tool to read instructor messages, course information, and other news updates.
News items appear in the News widget.
The News tool enables you to create news items that help communicate course updates, changes, and new information to your users quickly and effectively. Since My Home or Course Home is the first page that users often see when they log in or access their courses, the News widget is a good area for displaying important information.
Note The Global News Item icon appears beside global news items in your News widget.
Access the News tool
Do one of the following:
- Click News in the header of the News widget.
- Click Edit Course on the navbar, click News from the Communication section on the Course Administration page.
Global news items appear in the same My Home and Course Home pages' News widget as course-related news items.
