Announcements in Canvas

Canvas Course Announcements is a native tool in all Canvas courses, which instructors may use to post information that the entire class should know. Course announcements are often used to welcome students to the course, and post updates and reminders about course content.  

Canvas Announcements can also be replied to, making them a potential Question & Answer tool. Replies to announcements may occur inside of Canvas or as a reply to an email notification. You can allow “likes” by students or only by graders to add an additional level of interaction. Announcements may be available as an RSS feed or an external RSS feed may be added to post to your Canvas Announcements.
