The group email tool allows for efficient communication. The recipient list is automatically populated with group members, so you can quickly select all or some of them. Emails are sent to members’ external email addresses.
If groups prefer to keep communication within the course, they can use course messages, the Blackboard Learn internal mail tool. Since course messages is not available as a group tool, students need to select recipients from the list of all course members. Course messages keeps a record of all messages sent.
