Communicate Using the Blackboard Email Tool

Sending Email using the Blackboard Email Tool

The Email Tool allows you to send email to other members of your course to an email account outside of Blackboard. You can address email to individuals, to the entire class, to your instructor, or to groups of students.

NOTE: The default email address for the mail tool is your official UHD Email Account . For UHD Students, the default email address is their GatorMail account.
