Use Message Library

The Message Library is a resource to view all of the existing custom and pre-made teacher messages the teachers can use. Inside the Message Library, you can customize categories, delete or add new messages, select the bias, and identify message usage. Districts can remove or add any of the prerecorded library messages, and they can also create an unlimited number of customized messages and add them to the library at any time.

Access the Message Library

  • From the Blackboard Communication HQ interface menu, select Messages > Library.
