Step 4: How can I communicate with my students in Blackboard?

There are two types of email tools in Blackboard : Messages and Email. Messages are private and secure communication that occurs within a course and among course members, much like the course mail tool used in previous versions of Blackboard at UHD. The Email tool sends messages out of the course to a user's default email address (usually GatorMail). After mail is sent using the Email tool, Blackboard no longer keeps a record of the communication.

This step provides information for communicating with your students using the Blackboard Messages tool and the Blackboard Email tool.
