Can I use my personal email for my Blackboard course?
Yes. You can change your email address in blackboard. However, it is recommended that you continue to use your GSU email address.
Because Blackboard Learn often shares data with other systems on campus, such as the registrar's office, it may be necessary to ensure that your email address is the same everywhere.
- Blackboard does keep a record of messages sent through the messages tool. However, if you use external email, there will be no record in blackboard of that message. For all message sent using the external email tool, a copy is sent to your GSU email.
- Keep a copy of important messages in case you need them at a later date.
