Canvas for Elementary: Turn OFF the announcement display on the homepage
My students are waaaaay too young to understand that they need to scroll and scroll and scroll down below two whole weeks of announcements to find their class buttons, ESPECIALLY when the announcements are going to change every few days. I had MASS CONFUSION of 4 year olds today because I had one announcement up and they had no idea what was happening. I don't need announcements to show on my homepage - it clutters up an otherwise clean page. Please allow me to turn them OFF on the elementary template. If anything, I want a separate button for announcements, please. THANKS!!
Thanks for sharing this idea. We've edited the title and description so that our members and teams know that it is specific to Canvas for Elementary and have moved it forward for broader discussion.
In the meantime, we took a look at your course and suggest placing the information (which is indeed a very long scroll!) as Important Info in the Resources tab of the homeroom or subject rather than as an announcement: How do I add Important Info in the Resources tab a... The home page is designed to display one announcement, which will be deleted after two weeks unless a new announcement is posted, and that will replace the previous announcement. Important Info will persist in the Resources tab for the duration of the course.
You can edit this already. Go to Cour settings and scroll to the bottom and click "More options" it opens this page to allow customisation of announcements on the Home Page.
Thanks for providing the process for disabling announcements on the home page for non-C4E users, @CourtCassar . This idea is specific to Canvas for Elementary, where the announcements display is configured differently.
