How do I add content to my 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.

You can add text, images, files, and link to course content if you have permission to create or edit announcements.
