Log into O-Space

  • Select current course under gray heading "My Courses"

Option #1

  • Select "Settings" tab
  • Select "Group Email" from left gray menu bar (toward the bottom)
  • Select "Send Email"
  • Select "Next"
  • Check the box next to "Email Students"
  • Check the box next to "Email Faculty" (this way can verify email went out)
  • Enter email Subject
  • Enter email Body
  • Select "Send"
  • Select "Send" again to confirm

Note: Email is automatically sent to students' Otis accounts. No copy of the email is kept, which is why we recommend Option #2.

Option #2

  • Select "Posts" Tab
  • Select "New Post"
  • Enter a title
  • Enter content in body
  • Check the box "Notify everyone with view permission by email"
  • Select "Save" at the bottom

Note: The minute you select save an email is automatically sent out to everyone enrolled in your course. A copy is also kept under the "Posts" tab. This way if anyone claims they never received the email, you can reply that a copy was in the course as well. It also allows you to keep track of emails sent to your students.
