The Announcements tool is used to inform site participants about current items of interest. Announcements can have multiple attachments, such as documents or web addresses (URLs).
Sorting: You can sort announcements by subject, saved by (i.e., the person who last modified the announcement), modified date, for (i.e., the intended audience), beginning date, or ending date.
Posting: Announcements are posted to a course, project, or portfolio site. Site owners and instructors can choose to have an announcement automatically sent via email to all site participants by using the "low" or "high" notification setting. For more on managing email, see Tools for managing site communication.
