Students are not receiving Announcement emails from Blackboard
When you post an announcement to your courses, normally Blackboard sends that announcement to your students through email. Right now, some announcement emails are not being sent by Blackboard. To make sure your announcements are reaching your students, please use the Send Email tool (Control Panel > Course Tools > Send Email) to send your students the information they need to begin your courses.
This issue has been reported to Blackboard and has been given the highest priority. I am hopeful for a fast fix for this, but wanted to give you an alternative to use until it is fixed.
