Blackboard Announcements are an ideal way to post time-sensitive information critical to student success. Add announcements to your Blackboard for these types of course activities:

  • Due dates for assignments and projects
  • Changes to your syllabus
  • Corrections/clarifications of materials
  • Exam schedules
  • Links to Zoom sessions

You can also use your announcements to offer encouragement and reassurance for navigating these challenging times.

Announcements can be sent immediately to students via email. When creating your announcement in Blackboard, simply check “send copy of this announcement immediately” and each student will receive a copy in email right away. They will also see the announcement when they log into Blackboard.

For more information about creating and sending announcements in Blackboard, please check out the COLRS blog.
