Talking to your classmates

Here's a little-known fact: you can send e-mail to people in your class using the Siena system. This allows you to collaborate on projects easily.

Each class has its own mailing list. The simplest way to access yours (through Outlook Web Access) is this:
  • Open up a new mail message.
  • Type your instructor's last name in the To: box.
  • Click on the "Check Names" Button
  • The names of your instructor's class sections are listed. Find the one you're in and select it.

You can now send e-mail to the group (including the instructor).

Blackboard also has methods for sending a group e-mail. Contact for information.
