How do I make an Announcement in my course?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
Announcements are simple to make in Canvas.
Note: In your notification preferences, you can choose to receive notifications for announcements created by you as well as replies to announcements you've created.
Type a title for the announcement in the topic title field  and add content in the Rich Content Editor .
In the Announcement Options, you can delay the posting of your announcement , require students to reply to a post before seeing other replies , enable an announcement podcast feed , and allow students to like announcement replies .
Click the Save button.
Note: Unless you are using the delay posting option in Announcements, once you click Save, your announcement will immediately be posted in your course.
Once you save the announcement, it will appear on the Announcements Index Page.
