I am using the default theme in Moodle. I have two questions about Announcements.
1. How do you have announcements appear on the front page without learners having to click the Announcements link?
2. How do you have announcements automatically be emailed to learners? When I posted a test announcement, I had myself in the course as a student to see if I received a notification and I never received one.
I am new to Moodle and have never had this issue with any other LMS. Displaying and emailing announcements in my past experience was a default setting.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
