Whenever possible, try to communicate with students primarily through email and announcements so that there is a record of all module-related communications. Follow the steps below to email individual and groups of users (including students, teaching assistants, or instructors) for a particular module.
1). Expand the Course Tools menu in the Control Panel (at the bottom of the menu on the left of your module page) and select the Send Email option.
2). On the Send Email page, select the type of email you would like to send. As most communication will be between the instructor and the students, this example will use the All Student Users option. Please note that emails sent to ‘all users’ will be sent to everyone enrolled in the module regardless of teaching role (e.g. instructors, teaching assistants, and students).
3). On the next screen, Blackboard will automatically populate the ‘To’ and ‘From’ fields so all you need to do is type in the subject and content of your email and then click Submit. If desired, you may attach files as well.
