Announcements in courses

In the Blackboard app, you can view current course announcements within Ultra and Original courses. Tap an announcement to see its full text. For Ultra courses, new announcements appear with a dot until they are viewed.

For Original courses only, institution alerts appear in Announcements if the system administrator selected the option to post in courses.

Announcements in activity stream

The app's Activity Stream shows announcements for all courses and system-wide alerts from your school. System-wide alerts may also show in Announcements within your courses if the sender selected that option.

How to dismiss announcements and alerts in the activity stream
