How do I make announcements my home page?
How do I alert students of an new announcement?
Hello Tamika Fussell,
To post recent announcements on the homepage of a Canvas Course, refer to this guide:
How do I show recent announcements in the Course Home Page?
To answer your second question, you cannot set the notification settings for your students. The students all have the ability to change their notification settings to "Do not send". However, the default setting is set to "Notify me right away". So a possible solution is to remind your students to have their notifications set to the default setting. (More information here: How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as a student?)
Hope this helps,
