Rather than an announcement of the month, I have included a banner of the month. Many teachers use their banners in their courses as a place to post important updates and information. It is, after all, the first item students see when they enter your course. Here is a banner, a Toon Doo, that Lydia Richmond uses in order to advertise Wimba tutoring sessions. To change your banner, go to Control Panel > Course Design > Course Banner > New Banner Image and upload your image file.
