Answer: As an online instructor, how do you plan to incorporate news items and announcements? What resources would you reference to format news items?

News items are essential as they can help keep students and parents up to date with important course information. Just as teachers in a face-to-face classroom post news items on their white boards, online instructors need to keep their news items up to date on their homepages. PowerPoint, Thinglink, or Canva would both be easy resources to use to create news items for an online classroom.

Artifact: Create an example of a News Item and share the example in your blog. If the News Item includes a video or interactive, please share the link or, better yet, use an embed code.
