I am relatively new to using announcements for all of my whole-class messages. Some of these announcements are reminders about tutoring sessions. Once the session is over this announcement is a bit irrelevant. Do you keep all of your announcements up all year? Or, do you delete old announcements as they become outdated?
@waz107 , in general I keep them because it is a record of the course and what happened. If a student would try to question something related to the announcement then for me it's better to still have it to refer back to.
We have four online review sessions each week and I'm looking for the most efficient way is to remind students of these sessions on the morning of each session. I used to send messages via the Inbox, but I feel like there has been a push toward using announcements. With four announcements about review sessions each week it is getting cluttered and we're still in week 1 of the course. Would you suggest going back to the Inbox for reminders like this?
I think that I will only keep the announcements for the duration of the semester and then they will be erased.
Why not add them as events on the calendar? That way it would pop-up and be visible to students and wouldn't clutter announcements or your Inbox.
