Announcements are an ideal tool for facilitating communication with students concerning time-sensitive material such as reminders about upcoming due dates, changes in the syllabus, and corrections or clarifications of material.

Several options exist regarding date restrictions, duration, and the ability to override student Notification settings.  Announcements may be modified or deleted at any time.
