Set up Course Announcements in Batch

Canvas Announcements are a great way to communicate with students, define expectations, and let students students know the plan for the week ahead.

Sending a weekly announcement builds connection with students and make sure everyone remains focused and on task.

However, faculty don't often have time to craft and send out a new announcement every week. Did you know Canvas let's you build out a list of announcements in advance and delay their posting until you are ready?

Also Announcements can be reused - If you copy over older course materials into your new course site.  All of your old Announcements still exist.  All you have to do is update the posting dates.

See this tutorial on how to delay the posting of the announcement, so student communications are automated to go out on schedule.
