Communicating with Students


NOTE: The instant message tool is not available through BeachBoard.  Also, it is not recommended that faculty use the email function in BeachBoard. The tool has not proven to be the best source for tracking communications between faculty and students.  Instead, we recommend using campus related email.  For more general class announcements, we recommend using the News or Announcements tool.
