MyCCRI Course E-Mail

Your MyCCRI course e-mail is a quick and easy way to communicate with your students. As the instructor, you have an option of sending e-mail to all your students at one time, or just to selected students. You can also use course e-mail as an easy way to distribute class documents, for example a syllabus or weekly homework assignment. Students are automatically added to the class when they register.

Note: Faculty now have the option of deactivating students who have dropped or withdrawn from the course so that they no longer are on the course e-mail list through the Members function.

* To use Course E-Mail from off-campus, you will need to use the most recent version of FireFox *

To add an attachment to a class e-mail, follow the instructions below:

To send files created in other applications (Word, Power Point, Excel, etc.) as attachments to your e-mail messages, use the following procedure.

  • While working in the Compose E-mail window, click the Attach button. You see the Attach Files window.
  • Click the Browse button.
  • In the window that appears, browse your file system to locate the file you want to attach. When you find the file, select it and click Open.

  • Repeat steps 2 through 4 above to add other files as attachments to the message.
  • To delete an attachment, select the file that you want to delete from the list of added attachments and click the Remove button.
  • To return to message composition with the attachments that you've selected, click OK. To exit without adding or changing attachments, click Cancel.
