How to Post a News Article in MyCCRI

Faculty can post news articles of interest to their students in the News area of their course page. These articles can be copied and pasted into this area or typed in. Articles can be used as a reference for a class, for a required reading, or for the subject of a discussion on the Message Board.

Students can also submit news articles within their MyCCRI course homepage. The submitted article will be viewable within the course after being approved and activated by the instructor in Manage News.
