Sending Email through Blackboard
With Blackboard's convenient email feature, you can send emails directly to your entire class or any select person or people involved with the course. This saves you time and effort, since you no longer need to create a separate email contacts list or listserve in order to be in electronic contact with your students.
To Use the E-mail Tool
- Step 1: Click the Send Email button:
- Alternatively, this tool can also be accessed by clicking on Communications in the course Tools box:
Step 2: Depending on whom you’d like to contact, you can choose to send email to all users, all students, some students, all instructors, or other participants in the course:
Step 3: If you have chosen to send an email to select users, click the boxes next to those users you want to receive the email so that there are checkmarks in those boxes. Just like you would in your regular email program, enter a Subject, a Message, and click the Add button to attach files from your computer's hard drive:
Step 4: When you are done composing your message and attaching files, click the Submit button on the bottom right of the page.
Don’t forget, email messages sent from within Blackboard go to users' JTS webmail email addresses. Also, it will automatically be sent to yourself as well, so to locate it in the future, it will be in your inbox rather than in your sent items.
