Canvas Global Announcement Guidelines

Global Announcements in Canvas are a powerful tool for communicating with TMCC students, faculty, and staff. If you would like to request a Global Announcement post in Canvas, please read the following guidelines and submit the request form located below.

Posting Guidelines

  • Global Announcements should be used to communicate essential/emergency information and to promote academic and student services opportunities for TMCC students, faculty, and staff. This includes information such as:
    • Weather/emergency alerts
    • Planned outages or maintenance
    • New features or changes to Canvas
    • Important academic deadlines or announcements
    • A student services event (your announcement should include a link to your posted event.)
  • Global Announcements should be concise, to the point, and composed of approximately 50 words or less.
  • Global Announcements should have a clear start and end time of no more than seven days.
  • A maximum of 3 Global Announcements will be posted at any given time and will be posted on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • Posts for events and clubs will be limited to one post per month.
  • Priority will be given to emergency communications, then academic opportunities, and then to student services announcements.

TMCC Webcollege staff will review your request and determine if it meets the criteria for a Global Announcement. We will contact you to verify receipt and approval/denial of your request. If your request is approved, we will post the announcement on your behalf.
