Moodle announcements will automatically be sent out as an email to your students, as well as being displayed in the forum itself. 


(Note: Students cannot create posts or reply to posts in an announcement forum. Please create a separate discussion forum to allow your students to post on a forum.)


(Note: The notification will not get pushed out to students when the course is hidden. Make sure to check the course visibility before you post the announcements.)
