The news section serves as a vehicle for announcing information. The news posts appear on the students’ personal starting pages.
How can I transfer news announcements from a course repository to a course?
You can manage news items centrally in a course repository and transfer them to the course connected to the repository.
- First, activate the “News” application in the course repository
- Go to the associated courses
- Activate the “News” application
The news are automatically transferred from the course repository to the courses. News announced only in a course are not transferred back to the course repository, however.
I get an error message when I try to create a new news item.
If you get an error message when you try to create a new news item, it’s usually because the application is not activated.
If you don’t see “News” in the menu on the left-hand side of the screen, you first have to activate the app before you can proceed.
Students cannot access the news in the course.
If your students get a “permission denied” message when they click on a news item, please check if the permissions are set correctly.
If your news are transferred from the course repository to the course, please also check the application permissions in the course repository. In this case, the group “WU-Angehörige” must have permissions for the entire application.
