    Problem:

    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.
