View All Announcements on One Page

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

Use Case:

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 Smiley Happy,

Thanks, Michael.

This feature would also be helpful for instructors. The ability to either expand all or to select which announcements to expand would be even better.

Being able to edit existing announcements from within the announcements page, instead of opening them in a new tab, would also be great!
