Communicating with Students
CourseInfo provides many ways an instructor can communicate with students. These include e-mail, discussion boards, group chats, and even file transfers. In this lesson, you will send a student e-mail and post a question to the discussion board.
The CourseInfo E-mail tool is a quick and easy way instructors can send e-mail to students. You can e-mail individual students, groups of students, or all course members (including teaching assistants), directly from the course.
In the Enroll Student exercise, you created a student that uses your e-mail address. Send this student an e-mail thank you.
Step 1: Enter the Control Panel and choose Send E-Mail from the Communication Center area.
Step 2: Click on the option to Send Email to Single/Select Users.
Step 3: Place a check mark next to the student you will send the e-mail to.
Step 4: Click Send E-mail to Selected Users.
Step 5: In the subject area type: Thanks.
Step 6: In the message area type: I just wanted to thank you for voicing your opinion in class yesterday. Your insights about the medical use of rainforest materials turned into a wonderful class discussion.
