Use CUNYfirst, Blackboard, or QC Navigate to contact students by email.
CUNYfirst gives you quick access to a comma-delimited list of your students’ emails, which you can use to send email using your preferred email client. The CUNYfirst emailing interface allows you to customize the subject header and add recipients who are not in your class.
Blackboard's email tool allows you to send email to other people in your course without launching a separate email program. You can send email to individual users or to groups of users in your course.
QC Navigate is an interactive platform designed for use by advisors & faculty, administrators, and students. You can also use the QC Navigate platform to easily email or text your students.
