We've Rebranded Noticeboards As Announcements

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:

  1. 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. 
  2. Instead of displaying a background colour to distinguish between the announcement types, you choose a display icon
  3. 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.
