Create announcements to keep your students on track. In the Blackboard Instructor app, you create and view announcements within individual courses.

You can view previously sent announcements including sender, date, and message. For long announcements, tap to see all of the announcement's text.

You can schedule announcements to send at a later time and you can send an email copy to users. If you don’t see these features, your institution needs a system update.

In the Blackboard app, students see current announcements within individual courses and in the Activity Stream. When students access Blackboard on a web browser, they see announcements you created within the app in their course and on the My Institution tab.

Announcements are an Original Course View feature. Announcements aren't available on the app or a web browser for the Ultra Course View.
