Blackboard Message, a tool available within the Communications Area of Blackboard, will be made available to all instructors starting on Friday, September 25, 2009.
EdTech will be conducting a demonstration of the Blackboard Message functionality and best practices at noon on Friday, October 2, 2009, during the Cyberlearning Faculty Learning Community (FLC) meeting in Civil Engineering 115.
All instructors are welcome to bring their lunch to the Cyberlearning FLC meeting.
Blackboard Message is an internal email service within Blackboard that allows instructors and students to focus discussions about a course exclusively within the course, rather than through more traditional email channels such as Outlook.
Documentation on how to use this tool will be available on the EdTech web site (edtech.mst.edu) before the FLC meeting on October 2.
