myCourses: Emailing students in a concluded myCourses course

How to use Webcat to email students

After a course has concluded you can no longer use the email function within myCourses to email the students in that course.  If you want to communicate with those students go to Webcat and locate the course and use that email function.

Students are added to the myCourses by Canvas course 2 weeks prior to the start of the semester.  The course is concluded 4 weeks at the end of the semester and put in a read-only state.  If you want to communicate with students outside of that time frame, you will need to use UNH email.   At the start of the semester, publish the course to email student through the course.

  1. Log into Webcat
  2. Click on Faculty Services

  6. Scroll to bottom of enrollment list
  7. Click on display email list
  8. Copy and paste the email list into your "to" field in an email
