    i teach five different classes (classes, not sections! ) and I have an announcement to make to all my classes. Currently, the only way seems to be - make the announcement five times, once in each class.

     

    Shouldn't I be able to make it once, for all my classes?

    I have to second Kona's comment. Great use of RSS Bill Gibson!

    Just this week, we were discussing Announcements as a kind of object in Canvas that might be worth treating the same way we treat Discussions and Assignments. If we were to pursue that path, we could potentially support a scenario where teachers could create Announcements in one area, which are then fed into separate courses the same way managed content might be. This is part of some long-term planning and discussion going on, so I can't give any timelines. And this certainly isn't something we will address in the next six months. But it is a great idea and one we will continue to explore.
