Common announcement to all my classes

Common announcement to all my classes

(6)
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 bgibson@uncfsu.edu​!

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.

Can't upvote since votes aren't being taken right now, but I absolutely SECOND the need for this feature. Again, something I was accustomed to doing on my old LMS for numerous situations. Having to copy and paste in all classes is inconvenient. Thanks.

Very clever. Thank you.

Thanks.

The following creates a good looking RSS feed in a Canvas page:

RSS feed widget free from FeedWind, the best RSS widget available

Not sure it pulls a Canvas course "group" RSS feed, but does from WP.

I would love being able to do this!  Also, being able to post an assignment to more than one class would be super helpful and time-saving.

Well, it has been a year since Instructure said they'd explore this idea.  Any updates?  It would REALLY save time to be able to post one announcement to multiple classes.
