VCU will be upgraded on May 16, 2017 to the Bb Learn 9.1 Q4 2016 release. This new version will give instructors the ability to send reminders from the Grade Center to students and members of groups who have missing coursework.  The reminder tool is accessed from the gradebook by clicking the chevron associated with the gradebook column and selecting Send Reminder.  An email message that lists the course, coursework, and the due date if included, will be automatically generated and sent immediately.

This is just one example of how using Blackboard’s date and time selection tools to enter availability and due dates can help you support students.  Please see this post for more information related to Date Management.
