Glow uses a special forumto handle announcements. This forum can be accessed in two ways:
- By default, every new course has a link at the top of the page below the course title to the announcements forum, and
- There is a block at the top right that displays the latest announcement and also has a link to create a new announcement.
To add a new announcement
The easiest way to add a new announcement is to click on the link called post a new announcement in the announcement block. Once you click on this link, you'll be able to add the subject (IE, title) and full message of the announcement. Alternatively, if you click on the announcement link at the top of the course page, you'll see the full announcement forum and can click on the button called Add a new topic.
Regardless of how you add an announcement, it's subject, your name as the poster, and the first few lines of the summary will be visible in the announcement block. It can also be read in the forum.
