From Blackboard, Instructors can use the Send Email feature to send emails to individuals, all students, groups of students, etc. in their course. Instructors cannot send email to users outside of the course. A copy of the email is sent to the sender by default. Note: Instructors and Students need to read their email through HVCC WebMail, this feature only SENDS Email! Send Email only sends email to HVCC email address.

Important Note: You will not be able to use the SEND Email tool prior to the start of the term because students are not available within the course. On the flip side you cannot use this tool after students have lost access to courses at the end of the term.
