Course messages are private and secure text-based communication that occurs within a course and among course members. Although similar to email, you must be logged into a course to read and send course messages.
A new feature now includes notifications for new course messages. Notifications can be viewed from the Updates area (under the Global Navigation Menu), or the Whatâ€™s New institutional and course modules.
Notifications can also be sent directly to UALR email. This means users, including students, will receive notifications about a new course message but will still have to log-in to Blackboard to read and respond.
