FACULTY: COMMUNICATION VIA BLACKBOARD
- The best way to contact your class is by using the the "Announcements" tool or the "Discussions" tool in your Blackboard site.
- Information sent using those tools can never be lost, misdirected or deleted by accident. Students added to your class late can catch up on all important announcements as well when you use Blackboard.
- The Blackboard EMAIL tool on your course site is effective in reaching all currently enrolled students quickly to their Trent email addresses.
- Set up "Smart views" in Blackboard to email only the students from a particular seminar section.
NON-FACULTY COMMUNICATION: DISTRIBUTION LISTS
If you are not logged into Blackboard or do not have access to Blackboard, Course Section Email Distribution Lists can help.
