Academic Groups for Classes
A Google group is created for each class section of the current semester. Google groups are email mailing lists which allow you and your students to communicate via email messages as well as share documents and calendars.
Emailing your class group
You do not need to use the Google groups web interface to communicate with your class unless you choose to. You can simply send email to the class email address as you have with mailing lists in the past. The formula for a class email address is SUBJECTfirstname.lastname@example.org, substitute your course information as follows:
SUBJECT - Course subject as listed in the SIS. (Examples: ACCT, ARTHIST, ELEMECML, MATH)
1000 - Course number
01 - Course section
fall - Course term
For example, the email address for Accounting 1000 section 1 would be: ACCTemail@example.com.
