Emailing the entire roster of a course

To send an email to the entire roster of a course, it is highly recommended to use the Send Email tool within Blackboard Learn. Because every course at UCA automatically has a Blackboard course shell, an instructor can use Blackboard to send emails, regardless of whether or not they use Blackboard for other elements of instruction.

  1. To begin, log into Blackboard, and then click the Courses tab in the upper-right corner of the window.
  2. Click the desired course under Course List.
  3. Within the course, in the control panel menu on the left, click Course Tools and then click Send Email.
  4. Click the desired email option. To email all the users of the Bb course (instructors, teaching assistants, and students), click All Users. (If you chose Select Users or Select Groups, you will next choose the users or groups you would like to email.)
  5. Enter a Subject for the email, compose the email message, and attach a file if desired. When finished, click Submit to send the email.
NOTE: When students receive the email, it will include the course name at the beginning of the subject line. All the recipients are emailed with blind carbon copy (Bcc) so that student emails stay private. If a student replies to the email, the instructor will receive the reply in their UCA email account in Gmail; the reply will not appear in Blackboard and will not be visible to other users.
