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.

View this weeks video tutorial to learn how to do this.

Note: In your email message do remember to communicate to your students that they will not be able to access the course until such a such date.
