Show Announcements on Home Page

This guide will show you how to change your Settings to show Announcements on the Home page of your course.


Adding Announcements to the Homepage

If you have your Home Page set to Course Activity Stream, students will always see your Announcements right when they log in. However, if you want to use a Home Page other than Course Activity Stream, such as Syllabus, Modules, or a specific Page, you can change your course settings to allow Recent Announcements to display on that Home Page.

Click on Settings [1] at the bottom of your Course Navigation Menu. It should open on the Course Details [2] tab.
