    When an instructor attempts to create an announcement in a course that is unpublished or hasn't "started" yet, warn the instructor that notifications will not be sent for that announcement - ever. Ask the instructor if they wish to delay posting until course begins - with a simple checkbox "Delay until course is published and active."

     

    This instructor feedback will help clarify for them what is being sent to students (and what they think is being sent but, in face, is not).
