We're relaunching the noticeboard feature as Announcements.
Announcements allow you to post single-use messages to groups of learners in a course. Announcements appear as a small popup that appears in the top-right-hand corner of the screen allowing you to post a reminder or an update to the course as the learner works through it.
The functionality is essentially the same with a just a few notable changes:
- All announcements will be dismissible, you don’t have the option of making them not dismissible, however, you can pin them to the announcement board if you choose to.
- Instead of displaying a background colour to distinguish between the announcement types, you choose a display icon
- The announcements are no longer hidden by a menu, they appear in a fixed position at in the top-right-hand corner of the screen when a learner is in a course.
