Blackboard @ RDC

This guide will help you use Blackboard for your courses.

What's the difference between Email and Messages?

Your instructor may have enabled the Email and Messages tools in Blackboard.

Blackboard email goes to your RDC email. Sent items are found in your RDC email Sent folder.

Messages are contained within Blackboard. There is an Inbox and Sent folder within the Messages area. Messages cannot be forwarded to your RDC email (or any other email), so be sure to check your Messages frequently.

Where are my Blackboard Email messages?

I sent an email to my instructor. Where is it?

Blackboard Learn keeps no record of sent email. When you send an email message, you receive a copy of your email in your RDC Email Inbox (you can access this via TheLoop). Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.

How do I know if I have email?

Blackboard Learn keeps no record of received email. When you receive an email sent from within Blackboard, it will appear in your RDC Email Inbox. Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.
