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.)
Adding a post on a forum
- You can make an announcement by clicking Add a new topic.
- Provide the details in Subject and Message.
- Click on Advanced to review more options:
- If you have not checked "Send forum post notifications with no editing-time delay" under Announcement Settings, the announcement will be posted in 30 minutes. Afterwards, the announcement will be posted, and anyone subscribed to the forum will also receive an e-mail referring to it.
- Click Post to forum.
