Instructor Contact


Use email as your first mode of communication.  This is an online class, and the goal is to make the course available at any time of day from a variety of places.  You and your instructor will not always be (and in some cases, may never be) online at the same time.  That makes email, an "asynchronous" form of communication, and an ideal way to interact.

When you have a question about your course and would like to contact your instructor, Click on the Contact link from main navigation within your course and click their email address.

Use specific subject lines for your messages. Your instructor will make decisions about which email messages to read first.  Use specific subject lines to help them do this sorting.  If you need an immediate answer, put the word "urgent" in your email title.  If you have a question, start the subject with "Question about . . . " refer to specific assignments when needed.

But don't be afraid to try other forms of contact.  Sometimes, forms of communication other than email will be more appropriate.  Sometimes nothing can replace the immediacy of phone or face-to-face contact.  Other times, you will want to interact with both your instructor and other students via the discussion board.  A variety of contact information for your instructor is listed under the Contact link within your Blackboard course.
