Canvas - How do I create an announcement?

As an instructor, you can make announcements for your class to inform them of changes, give access to information, or check in with students. The three most recent announcements appear on the course Home page by default.

Tips and Tricks

  • Students are notified of new announcements via their preferred notification form, which they set up in their personal Canvas settings. This means that most students will receive a notification as soon as you post an announcement.
  • You can choose to allow students to reply or like announcements you post in your course.
  • In your notification preferences, you can choose to receive notifications for announcements created by you as well as replies to announcements you've created.
