Add Lecturer information (contact)

Contacts is a tool where you add profile information about yourself and other staff that is distributed to students. This is a good location to provide information about office hours, phone numbers, and other links to help students find the people who have important roles in the course. Groups of selected contacts can be combined into folders. For example, you could create a folder named Teaching Assistants and assign all TA contacts to that folder.

Announcements

Announcements post timely information that can improve course success. You can add, edit, and delete announcements from the Announcements page. When you create an announcement, you can also send it as an email to students in this course. This ensures that students receive the announcement immediately even if they do not log in to your course.

Change the Course Language Pack

Language pack preferences are defined at the system level, the course or organization level, and finally at the user level. At the system level, your University defines one language pack as the system default. This is the language pack that appears when no other language pack is specified at the course level or at the user level. At the course level, you can set a language pack and enforce it. Enforcing a language pack means that all users will view the language pack. For example, one possible reason to enforce a language pack's use is for a course teaching that language. If the language pack is not enforced, and a user has a preferred language pack associated with their account, the user’s language pack will override the course language pack. At the user level, individuals may select their preferred language pack, unless a language pack choice has been set to be enforced.

Course Messages in clickUP

Messages are private and secure text-based communications that occur within a course and among course members. Although similar to email, you must be logged in to the course to read and send messages. Using the Messages tool instead of the Email tool can also be more reliable. Problems with incorrect or out-of-date student email addresses do not affect course communication.

Send an e-mail from clickUP

The Email tool allows you to send email to other people in your course from within Blackboard Learn without launching an external email program, such as Gmail, Hotmail, or Yahoo. Email can be sent to individual users or to groups of users. A copy of email messages is sent to the sender by default. IMPORTANT: Blackboard Learn keeps no record of sent or received email. When you receive or send an email, the email appears in the Inbox of your external email program. Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.
