Emailing a Group and an individual user in Blackboard

In Blackboard, you can email individual users, select users (by name or course role) or single or multiple groups of users. What if you have several coinstructors in a class, yet want to email a group of students AND carbon copy just one instructor?

Here’s a workaround in use in some programs at USD: Enroll each instructor in his or her own group. When composing an email inside of Blackboard, choose the group of students and the “group” containing the instructor you’d like to email. Both the students and the designated coinstructor will receive the email, without having to email ALL coinstructors.
