Blackboard announcements guide

The announcement tool allows staff to communicate important information to module participants. The announcements’ page will display any new announcements from your course organisers.

You should log in to check these announcements regularly, because they may include changes to timetables, locations, assignments etc.

How to view Announcements

Announcements are displayed on the Homepage and in Course Areas:

View My Announcements from the Homepage

From the homepage you can view all the system announcements posted in the last 7 days (default view). However, you can customise the view by using the arrow (located in the title Announcement bar) to display announcements from ‘Today’, ‘Last 7 days’, ‘Last 30 days’ and to show ‘All’.

You can also customise the display by clicking on the more announcements… link

View my announcements within my course area

Once you click on your course area, announcements is the section that appears first when you enter.
