In the Blackboard app, you can view current course announcements from your instructor within an individual course. For long announcements, tap to see all of the announcement's text.

The app's Activity Stream shows announcements for all courses.

The Activity Stream shows alerts from your school, which are system-wide announcements. These alerts may also show in Announcements within your courses if the sender selected that option.

When you access Blackboard on a web browser, you see announcements from your instructor in your courses 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.
