I would like to see some improvements to the "Announcements" tab. Specifically, it would be nice to be able to:
- view all announcements on one page with an option to expand all announcements
As a student, checking my unread announcements is an almost daily task. The system I currently have is this:
Click on the "Announcements" tab >>> Click on the 1st unread announcement and read it >>> Click on the "Announcements" tab (again) >>> Click on the next unread announcement and read it... I have to repeat this process for however many unread announcements I have, per class. This is especially time consuming after a School Break and towards the end of a regular school week, because there are many announcements for each class that are posted. I think it would be helpful to have a way of accessing multiple announcements without having to go through the process described above.
My inspiration for this idea came from a discussion I recently participated in. I noticed that I had the ability to "Expand replies" and view all submissions on one page (snip below showing this feature). This would be a nice feature to include for accessing announcements, but I need the support from the Canvas Community to make this a possibility.
"Expand replies" Feature Currently Available in Discussions:
(I have also put together a possible "Announcements" tab layout to help others to visualize my suggestion. If you wish to take a look: it has been attached to this post.)
Thank you so much for your support ,
