Faculty - Blackboard Grade Center - Sending Reminders



Instead of sending emails through Blackboard or from your college email to remind students of missing work, you can now send email reminders through the Grade Center. Using the Send Reminders feature in the Grade Center automatically sends a system generated email to all students that are missing work. This feature eliminates the time spent searching the Grade Center for students that have not yet turned in work. 


1. Login to Blackboard and go to the course where you want to send reminders.

2. Scroll down to the Course Management menu and click Grade Center.

3. Click Full Grade Center.

4. Locate the assignment column in the Grade Center where you want to send an email reminder about missing work. Click the small down arrow next to the name of the assignment in the column until a pop-up menu appears.
