Course Section Email Lists enable you to send messages to all of the students in a particular section with one email address.

There is no list maintenance on your part! The list(s) are automatically updated as students drop/add any course/section. A list of these members may be viewed in the "Instructor Only" folder in the Project Directory area for a course/section.

You may choose from two types of list templates. The first template is Instructor Only, where the instructor is the only person who can send a message to the list. Replies to messages for this list template are directed to the sender of the message. The second template is Members Only, where messages can be sent to the list by the instructor or students in the course/section. In this case replies to messages from the list are sent to the entire list.

  1. Open your web browser and enter If a login box appears, enter "IUPMSD\" followed by your username, then enter your network password.
  2. You should now see the course section e-mail request form. The top portion of the screen explains when the list will be available and how the list will be named.
  3. In the section titled Request Form, you will need to enter the following:
    • Department Code: Code for your department (e.g., ACCT)
    • Course Code: Code for the course you are requesting the list for (e.g., 201)
    • Section Code: Code for the section you are requesting the list for (e.g., 001)
    • Semester: Select the semester from the drop-down list
  4. Choose the List Template. You can select from two choices:
    1. Instructor Only: Posting only accepted from the instructor(s) for the course-section. REPLY TO responses directed to sender.
    2. Members Only: Posting only accepted from members of the list (instructor and students from the course/section). REPLY TO responses directed to the entire list.
  5. Click the Submit button.
  6. Once you have submitted the request for a course section list, you will see a screen that indicates your request has been successfully completed. If there are issues, you will need to correct the errors. The most common is that you entered a course that you are not the instructor for.
  7. In approximately 24 hours you will receive an email message that indicates your list has been created.
