Instructors have several options for sending email to students enrolled in their classes.
- TAMUDirect: Provides instant creation of class email lists and offers functions to send messages to those lists. Powered by Google Groups, this self-service application maintains up-to-date contacts based on course rosters or university organization information. Rosters are updated nightly. The older version, TAMUDirect Classic, also will be available until its retirement following the Spring 2016 semester
- Howdy: Email functions available in the Howdy web portal in the Class Roster on the Instructor tab allow instructors to send email to an entire class roster, individual students within a class or all students in multiple classes. Will be retired following the Spring 2016 semester and replaced by the upgraded TAMUDirect.
- eCampus: has a Mail tool, which routes messages to various course roles (co-instructors, designers, TAs, students and groups). It also can forward to email addresses external to the learning management system.
