Do you need to get an announcement to your students and ensure that they see it? Consider using the announcements function in Blackboard. You can create an announcement for your students, teaching assistant(s), or auditor(s) quickly and easily. To ensure that the intended recipient will in fact see the announcement, check the last option on the page, “Also deliver as a pop-up message.” This will make a new window “pop up” when a student logs in with the announcement in it. A student must move or close this window to see their Blackboard page. Note: Pop-up blocker settings may need to be changed to receive these messages. However, these settings should already be set correctly in order to access Blackboard in the first place.
