Is it possible that we can create a group module to send the announcements to a particular group in blackboard learn.

Hi, Gaurav. I'm not aware of a way to send an announcement only to a group, but I think you could do this with messages. Does anyone else have an idea that could help?
I agree with Gurav it would be a good feature to have, and I've known professors asking for it before.
Announcement is different from other communication tools because :
It can send an email but it also keeps archive of previous announcements visible for students, so they don't have the excuse of "I didn't receive the email", but they also don't necessarily need to connect to Learn to know about the announcement. None of the other communication features enable this out of the box.
That being said, here are some alternatives you may use in the meantime :
Also, one cool thing the "Announcement" feature does and the others don't is the ability to schedule in advance an announcement (availability date). The downside is it can't be coupled with sending the announcement by email ... Ideally one could use Announcement to schedule email communications , but well, I don't think it's anywhere on the roadmap for now.
Best of luck Gurav !
Hello Yolene ORS Mam,

(for Brad Evans : this is an idea duplicate with this [GROUPS] Announcements for Groups and this Specify Announcements for different groups in Learn )
