|Latest News and News Forum
Many teachers have added the the Latest News block to their courses but it will always be empty unless you have content in the News Forum.
By default, the News Forum appears at the top of every course. You can choose how many items will be displayed in the Latest News block - this is set in administration / settings - News items to show. Eg if you set News items to show to 3, the latest 3 postings in the News Forum will be displayed in the Latest News block. You can change the name of the News Forum to anything you like, eg "Announcements" as shown in the example above.
If you don't want to use the News Forum, you can delete it, but it will keep magically reappearing unless you set News items to show (see above) to 0. Remember to also hide or delete the Latest News block.
As an alternative to deleting the News Forum you can hide it but remember to also hide or delete the Latest News block.
NB only teachers can post to a News Forum.
