Course messages is a private and secure messaging tool that is similar to email except that it remains within a Blackboard course. Course messages can only be sent and received by course users. The advantage of using Course Messages is the ability to retain instructor and student exchanged messages. Students who are sent a course message will receive a notification via the What’s New module located in the Notifications Dashboard or on the course Home Page. Typically, students access course messages from the course menu.
