Announcements post timely information critical to module success. The Instructor can add, modify, and remove announcements via the Announcements tool in the Control Panel.
Sending messages to your students
This article shows you how to edit and delete an announcement.
Instructors (and students if the Email tool is added to your site menu) can send email to individuals who participate in a particular Blackboard site from the Send Email page.
You can set simple rules in Outlook to prevent emails from Blackboard sites that you are enrolled on, but do not regularly use, from accumulating in your inbox. Outlook can move them automatically to a separate folder when they arrive.
