Audience: Instructors


The Email tool allows you to send email to other people in your course from within Blackboard Learn without launching an external email client, such as Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo. Emails can be sent to individual users or to groups of users. A copy of this email is sent to the sender by default.

IMPORTANT!  Blackboard Learn keeps no record of sent or received emails. When you receive or send an email, the email will appear in the Inbox of your external email client. Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.

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.
