Notice that we are still under the "My Pulse" tab at the top of the page (we know this because the tab is in white). This page allows you to look at system announcements for the courses in which you are enrolled.
Shortly after you register for a course, the instructor will add you to the course website. Once registered or, in Pulse terminology, “enrolled” in a course, the announcements posted by the instructor that day will appear in your announcements box on the main page. Older messages can be seen in this "Announcements" page.
What if I don't want to view all the announcements?

--The Announcements page lists announcements posted by the instructors of the courses you are enrolled.
--Use the tabs above the announcements to display announcements by when they were posted.
--You may also filter announcements by changing the selection in the drop-down menu from "Show All" to the desired course/ organization.
