The email tool allows you to send email to other people in your course without launching a separate email program, such as Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo. You can send email to individual users or to groups of users.

Send an email copy

You can send a copy of a course message to the recipients' email. When you send an email copy to your students, they're more likely to see, read, and act on important announcements and course messages.

Email copies are only delivered if the recipients have valid email addresses in their Blackboard Learn profiles. Encourage your students to complete their profiles so email copies can be delivered successfully.

To send a copy of your message through email, select Send an email copy to recipients when you compose and send your message. All recipients receive an email copy of the message.

More on sending messages

Recipients receive your message by email, but any replies to the email aren't sent back to Blackboard Learn. Users need to log in to respond to your course message.
