Announcements: 'liking' the original post

    Announcements lack the ability for students to 'like' the original post made by the instructor. Students can only like any subsequent replies to the original post. This is a problem as often instructors do not want students to be able to reply to announcements, however it would be beneficial for them to allow students to like the original post – for example, to indicate agreeance with the announcement's content, or happiness with a decision made by the instructor.


    Feature proposal:

    Allow students to 'like' the announcement's original post, much like they can 'like' replies to the announcement.
