If a course has a content page set as the course home page, instructors can display a certain number of recent announcements at the top of the page. This change allows instructors to show announcements as part of the course home page when students view GLOW in a web browser.
To enable this feature, instructors can select the Show Recent Announcements checkbox in Course Settings and specify the number of recent announcements that should be shown (up to 15). By default, the interface displays three announcements unless the number is adjusted.
Announcements are not removed from the home page after a specific date, so instructors who post a large number of announcements may consider setting the display to show more announcements; instructors who only periodically post announcements may consider setting the display to show a smaller number.
