Two kinds of announcements are used in Blackboard. Institution announcements are displayed on your Blackboard homepage and are usually information for all students. These may be dates of careers fairs, examination timetables etc.
Course announcements are specific for students enrolled on a particular course. These are also visible on your homepage and under the My Announcements tab in your course. Please note that not all courses within Blackboard will utilise the announcements tool; this is determined by the course tutor.
