The Announcements area

The Module Announcements page is the default landing page for students at module level.

When students access your module area, this will the first page they see. Consequently, it is good practice to make use of the announcements section to publish relevant information, guidance, and short summaries and reflections on key activities on a regular basis. Announcements published within the module area can be sent automatically to student email addresses and include links to specific content or areas within the module. Students using the Blackboard mobile app or accessing via a web browser will have configurable access to updates and announcements from all their modules.

Guidance is to consider carefully the frequency, timing and purpose of announcements in the context of the module, but weekly summaries, reflections, and ‘where next’ updates are encouraged.
