Social-inspired stream for your course 

Activity Feed is a homepage widget that can be used to create a central place for users to engage and stay up-to-date on what’s happening in their course. Activity feed is similar to announcements, but you can easily add assignments and content to your posts.

Why use the activity feed?

  • Communicate to students about the week’s content all in one place / in one place.
  • Social-media style activity feeds are often familiar to students which makes them easy to use and navigate.
  • Useful way to share information dynamically (rather than posting it all ahead of time).
  • A social media-style communication tool that can encourage communication and collaboration.
  • Engage students by asking students to comment on your post with their biggest takeaway or a question they have going into class.
