FACULTY: ULTRA: How do I send messages to students in Blackboard Ultra?

If you are teaching with Blackboard Ultra this semester, you may have noticed that the “Send Email” tool in your Ultra courses is gone – so where is it?

“Send Email” has been replaced by the Messages tool, which functions in a similar way. You can still send emails to individual students or your entire class roster through the Messages tool, but now your students will also receive a copy of your message in a central “Messages” location in Blackboard.

Within your Ultra course site, click the link to the Messages link in your top menu bar (see image below).  To learn more, view Blackboard’s 3-minute video on “Messages”.  You may fast forward through the parts of the video where they demonstrate how Messages works in the previous version of Blackboard, Learn Original.
