You can send email to anyone on your Writing Studio class roster, including your instructor, using the class email tool. On your class main page, click on the "Email List" icon or link.
This will take you to a page with the email form. Here you can select exactly who to send your email to; your instructor, the entire class, or individual students or members of class groups; using the drop down menu on the "To" line.
The "From" line is set to use the email address associated with your Writing Studio account. You can also send copies of the email to other users if you'd like by filling in their addresses in the "CC" line. Just like most other email programs, type in your email title in the "Subject" line and type your message in the text box.
You can also use the email tool to "Send Email to Selected Class Members." Simply click on that link on the main email page, which will take you to a page where you can select the specific class members to whom you'd like to send the email by checking the box next to their names.
If you'd like to include an attachment with your email, click the "browse" button and locate that file.
When you are finished composing your email, click on the "Send" button.
