Embed Announcements on a Lessons page

From EdTech Help

Instructors can embed course announcements on a Lessons page. This can be useful if you are using Lessons as your course landing page, or if you wish to call attention to upcoming announcements within your content pages. Embedded announcements will automatically update according to the visibility dates specified in the Announcements tool.
