Introduction

The Absorb Engage upgrade includes the News Articles feature.  With it, Admins can publish content specifically targeted at select audiences, delivered via the Learner Dashboard.  Once a New Article is published, learners will see it available in their News Articles Tile.  Learners have the option to open a summary of the story, and, if interested, continue to the full article.
