Emailing a Course Group

Instructors and course group members can send email messages to selected group members or the entire group.

Blackboard Learn keeps no record of sent emails. Copies of your email messages are stored in the Inbox of your external email account. Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.

How to Send an Email Message Within a Course Group

For Windows, to select multiple users in a list, press the SHIFT key and click the first and last users. To select users out of sequence, press the CTRL key and click each user needed. For Macs, press the COMMAND key instead of the CTRL key.

  1. Access your group from the Groups page or from the My Groups panel.
  2. On the Group Tools module, click Send Email.
