Tech Tip Tuesday - Communicating with Students When Course is Unavailable
Many instructors wish to communicate a short message with students before the course is made available. Many think by posting an announcement when a course is unavailable (even when they check the button to email the announcement) that is goes to their students. This isn't always true.
The best way to communicate to students when the course has not been turned on yet is through the Blackboard email system. The other great benefit to this is the fact that you can also add an attachment, like the syllabus.
