Blackboard Connect @ Los Angeles Mission College - July 2012
In 2012 the Title V HSI-Improving Student Success and Access project acquired the Blackboard Connect (BBC) to reach out to our students and inform them of activities, resources, and services provided at the LRC and their respective success centers. Funded by Title V, Los Angeles Mission College implements the BBC system to enhance campus-wide communication and emergency preparedness.
With BBC, the college will have the ability to send out two specific types of messages: outreach messages and emergency messages. A message can reach to recipients by their cell phones, home phones, email addresses, and TTY/TDD receiving devices for the hearing impaired in an efficient and timely manner.
Outreach messages are sent only to the primary email addresses.
Alert messages are sent to all configured email addresses and phone numbers.
We are working hard to provide the college community with the latest messaging technology. This communication technology adds to our ability to maintain a learning, teaching environment in which students and employees are safe, comfortable and informed.
