I'm a student. How do I email my instructor, TA or other members of my course?
There are 2 ways for a student to email their instructor:
- Via the Help / Ask Your Instructor a Question
- Via the Inbox / Compose Message
Students can email their TAs or other members of their course via the Inbox / Compose Message tool
To email your instructor via the Help / Ask Your Instructor a Question - Click on Help
Click "Ask Your Instructor a Question"
This displays a message tool for sending your instructor an email message
Select the course from the dropdown box
Enter your message then click Send Message
This sends an email message to your instructor.
Note: If there are multiple instructors for the course, an email will be sent to all of the instructors.
To send an email to your Instructor, TAs or other members of your course via the Inbox / Compose Message - Click Inbox
Click the Compose Message icon
This displays the Compose Message form
Use the Select Course dropdown box to select the course, whose participants you want to email
Click the Accounts icon to the far right of the "To" box to see the various groups of class participants
NOTE: Students cannot bulk email a group of course participants. They can only email individual members of the course

Enter a Subject and Message
Consider selecting "Send an individual message to each recipient"
If "Send an individual message to each recipient" is checked, any recipient that clicks "Reply All" to the received email will be sending their reply to YOU ONLY.
If "Send an individual message to each recipient" is not checked, any recipient that clicks "Reply All" to the received email will be sending their reply to ALL PARTICIPANTS that received the email.
Options - Attach a file / Create and attach a webcam video
This sends an email to the selected recipients and stores a copy of the email in your "Sent" box for this course.
