The Message Tool allows you to send messages to other members of your course. You can address mail to individuals, to the entire class, or to groups of students. Although similar to email, users must be logged into Blackboard to read and send Messages.
NOTE: Messages created within Blackboard Learn are internal to Blackboard only. There is currently no indicator for new messages outside of the messages inbox, so please remember to check Blackboard Learn Messages for each of your classes regularly. For a video version of the information contained here, please visit the Blackboard OnDemand Learning Center Tutorial - Sending Blackboard Messages.
