ANGEL Tip of the Day #47 - Private Announcements

Happy Spring everyone! At the beginning of the quarter, one often finds students with bad email addresses. In an online class, especially, it can be challenging to figure out how to reach the student. You can post a private announcement for a specific person or a team.

When posting an announcement, the box just above the Save button says User> Everyone (circled below in red). If you click on that downward arrow, you’ll see your teams and then the individual students in your class. Just choose the appropriate recipient and you’ll be good to go.

FYI – students can update their email address in the SMS system at the Student Address Information page and they can update it in ANGEL using the profile button in ANGEL (circled below in orange)

Keep in mind that you will not, by default, see this announcement in your Announcements list under the Announcement Editor. This is because the default view is announcements that are visible to everyone. If you change the User to the specific person or team, you’ll then see that announcement.
