You can manage the news widget directly from your Course Home page. The news tool enables you to communicate updates, changes, and new information to your students quickly and effectively.
News items appear in the news widget on the Course Home page, the first page that students see when they enter the course. In addition, students can subscribe to news updates through email notifications, text-message notifications, or an RSS feed.
For information on viewing and managing the content for your Calendar, see the Viewing the Calendar and Adding Calendar Events guides. To modify the display settings or visual appearance of your News widget, see the Managing Widgets guide.
