Create Note to Attach to Class


This topic demonstrates how to create a class note that will display on the Class Details screen when students look at the schedule of classes.

Class Notes are used to convey information to students that is not conveyed through the course description. For example, an instructor may want to include a note that an assignment is due on the first day of class, or that the class meets off-campus after its first meeting.
