You can send email to individuals who participate in your course using the Send Email function. Emails are sent to individual users or to groups of users within the course, such as all Students. The email will be sent to the user's GVSU email. A copy of this email is sent to the sender by default.
You can send email to the following people in a course:
Note: Recipients of each email will not see the email addresses of other recipients. Instructors cannot send email using this tool to others that do not have access to the course/organization.
Note: To select multiple users in a row, press the SHIFT key and click the first and last names. To select users out of sequence, press the CTRL key and click each name needed. You can also select all course members with the Select All function.
Email clients, such as Hotmail, Yahoo, and AOL may identify email from Blackboard Learn as junk mail and either automatically delete the email or move it to a junk mail folder. If you have problems, check your user preferences or options for settings regarding the handling of junk email. You can also change your email address.
Instructors can communicate using Email with Students, their Observers, and others in the Grade Center. This form of direct contact allows Instructors to actively communicate with relevant parties while engaged in grading in the Grade Center. Such immediate feedback can quickly lead to intervention if required, promoting positive outcomes for students. Email is sent from the Grade Center in two different ways, depending on whom the Instructor would like to contact.
Note: Although an email is sent to the selected group, each individual recipient is not aware of any other recipients.
