How to Restrict Student to Student Email within Blackboard
By default, all options within the Send Email tool are open to faculty and students enrolled in a Blackboard course.
To restrict student to student emailing through Blackboard:
- Click on Control Panel
- Select Customization
- Select Tool Availability
- Scroll down to Email. Click the down-pointing arrow button and select Email Settings.
- Uncheck the boxes for the options that you don’t want students to have access to.
• Example: If you only want students to e-mail instructors and TAs, uncheck all boxes except:
– All Teaching Assistant Users
– All Instructor Users
- Click Submit.
Instructors and TAs can still send e-mail to anyone in the class, even if the steps above were completed, by going to:
- Control Panel
- Course Tools
- Send Email
