WSU instructors using Brightspace or those interested in using Brightspace in the future.


This page shows how to remove an Announcement on your Brightspace course homepage.

Dismissing an Announcement

Announcements age and become irrelevant over time. If the list of Announcements in a course gets too long or just needs some clean-up, individual items can be removed from the published list.

You can remove an Announcement from the home page by clicking the X to the right of the Announcement headline in the News Widget. (See below.)
