Moodle 3: Blocks: Latest News Block

Announcements (formerly known as News forum) is a special forum for general announcements. Only primary instructors, non-primary instructors, and teaching assistants (TAs) can post in the Announcements forum. Students cannot post items to the Announcements forum or reply to posts. By default, all course participants are subscribed to Announcements and will receive an email when a post is made. Any post will also appear in the Latest News block. In order to use this feature, one must first add the Latest News block.
