In order to send announcements to individuals that are assigned an external course, just search for the course in question in your course catalog and click on the Send Announcements option.
Search the recipients and select them by clicking on the “+” symbol. To complete your announcement, you can write a message in the space provided, add an image/URL or click Upload Attachment to upload documents from your computer. Finally, click Announce.
You can also prioritize the announcement by checking the High Priority checkbox right below the message. You need to choose the number of days before your announcement loses its high priority status and becomes a regular announcement.
High priority announcements are shown on the homepage of your academy in the High Priority Announcements section of the page.
