Did you know that Blackboard has an email tool built-in? This can be a great tool for keeping in touch with your students. Blackboard uses the MSU Denver email of each course user, so the emails will go to and from your university email and your students’ university emails. You could use this feature to send updates about the course or share important files that students will need including powerpoints, pdfs/readings, documents, worksheets/assignments, or links to websites and videos.
