How do I post an announcement in my course? 



  • Blackboard



  1. Click Announcements
  2. Click Create Announcement in the upper-left. 
  3. Fill in the Subject and Message fields. 
  4. Choose whether you want to set a date restriction. 
  5. Select the Email Announcement option to send an email to students.

  • Use a clear and concise subject line. The subject line is the first thing that students will see.
  • Try to keep your announcement brief and to the point.
  • Use formatting to make your announcement easy to read. Use headings, bullets, and bold text to break up your text and make it easier to read. 
  • Use a clear call to action. Tell students what you want them to do after reading your announcement. 
  • Proofread your announcement before you post it. Make sure there are no errors in grammar or spelling.
