Communication Tools for Students in eCampus

Overview:

eCampus contains many tools that can help students stay connected with classmates and instructors. View the Communication Tools for Students in eCampus video.

Notifications

eCampus contains notifications under My WVU eCampus for all courses in which you are enrolled.

Your instructor may have also created a Home Page that displays notifications for that course only. The Home Page notifications may include announcements, tasks, and a To Do list. View Blackboard's Navigate Inside a Course page for full instructions.

You can also download the Blackboard mobile app and then receive notifications on your phone. After downloading, set your phone to allow Notifications for the Blackboard app.

After logging in to Blackboard on your phone, you will be able to see a list of all notifications.  You can then click a notification to see its details. View Blackboard's Push Notifications page for full instructions.

Calendar

Your instructor may have added a calendar to your course menu. Items on the calendar can be assignments or tests with due dates, and anything else your instructor wants you to be aware of. Clicking an item enables you to view its details and instructions.

You can add an event to the calendar to be seen only by you. Click the plus sign in the calendar and then enter the item details. View Blackboard's Calendar page for full instructions.

Course Messages

When your course instructor or classmates have sent you a message, you will see a number in the upper right corner of the screen by your name.

You can click this number and see the title of the message. You can then click Open to view the content.

You can also send a message through eCampus to any of your classmates and instructors if your instructor has made this option available to you. View Blackboard's Messages page for full instructions.

Email

You can also send email to any of your classmates and instructors if your instructor has made this option available to you. View Blackboard's Email page for full instructions.
