How do I post an announcement in the News forum?
You will learn how to post an announcement to the News forum in your course in TITANium.
The News forum is a powerful communication tool automatically included in the top section of your course. The News forum is set so that only you, as the instructor, can post an announcement. All students are subscribed to this forum, and therefore, receive an email every time you create a new post. Students cannot reply to the emails they receive.
You can hide, delete, or rename the News forum to suit your teaching style.
2. Click on Add a new topic.
3. Write your Subject and Message.
In the Message text box, you may include text, hyperlinks, images, video, etc. However, students will only be able to see images, video and other media (and file attachments) when they are logged in to the course and have clicked on the News forum link from the course main page.
The email they receive will only include formatted text (including hyperlinks).
5. The announcement is posted immediately.
You have now learned how to post to the News forum in your course in TITANium.
