How do I send an announcement to another instructor?

Find your school's Canvas URL

To find your school or institution's Canvas URL, begin typing the name of your school/institution. Results will appear after you type at least 3 characters. For best results be as specific as possible. If you can't find your school, try using any part of your school's name or searching for your school district or state. You may also need to search for the school using the acronym or full name, for example "USU" and "Utah State University".

How do I send an announcement to another instructor?

As an instructor, you can share individual announcements in your course with other instructors at your institution. You can also copy an individual announcement into another course.

When you share an announcement, any assets within that announcement (images, files, etc.) will be included in the shared file. Announcement settings, including delay posting dates, are also included in the shared announcement.

Notes:  

  • To share course content, you must have the Course Content - add / edit / delete permission enabled.
  • Shared content does not count against course or user quotas.
  • You can use the Send to feature to send course content to yourself.
