Announcements provide space on the PCC homepage to share noteworthy information to our public audience. Announcements are of interest to a broader audience that would not typically be targeted by an email or a MyPCC announcement. Examples of announcements include timely notifications regarding Kaleidoscope, start of a term, schedule release, and public awareness spots (e.g., where to look for weather closure information).
Announcements can be used to highlight topics that would not otherwise be included as a web feature and to reinforce current marketing campaigns (e.g., Weekend College push). They are timely and short-lived. Most announcements only remain on the home page for a two week run. Typically there are only two announcements posted at any one time, but it is possible to include three items.
Announcements include a title and subdeck text. They typically include a small thumbnail image but this is not a requirement and both the title and image link to a content level page for more details.
The Web Team manages announcement requests and posting.
