Student Academic Mailing Lists
The ability to send email to students enrolled in a particular subject or course is provided in one of these ways:
Subject Email Aliases
Subject Email Aliases
Subject aliases are implemented as Private Lists.
The Private List restrictions are:
The lists are not discussion lists and thus not generally available
The lists are not searchable in the Outlook Global Address List (GAL)
The lists can only be posted to by those designated via StaffOnline Teaching Roles Database as
As an example the subject descriptor cs2001 can be qualified by campus, mode and semester:
firstname.lastname@example.org is for all students, regardless of semester, campus, and study mode.
email@example.com is for Cairns semester 1, regardless of study mode.
firstname.lastname@example.org is for Townsville semester 2, regardless of study mode.
email@example.com is for Singapore semester 1, regardless of study mode.
firstname.lastname@example.org is for Townsville, external mode, semester 2.
Note that is still using the old CSDB terminology to describe subject campuses and semesters, Teaching Roles Database has been updated to use Student Management terminology; users will need to make the conversion manually.
Associated staff via supported email clients, e.g. Staff Web Mail, Outlook or Entourage, can only use these lists.
You can send a one-off email to any list of students matching a specific criteria via "Class Lists" in StaffOnline.
Instructions for accessing and using Classlists features are available inside the application.
Note that these email aliases are created temporarily and can be used only for one-time bulk emails.
A coordinator, lecturer or tutor can send email to LearnJCU subject groups via LearnJCU.
For further information on using this and other features, for example discussion boards, of LearnJCU please visit the LearnJCU website.
To enable recipients to tell which subject the message relates to, please include the relevant Subject Code (e.g. 2003_BU1000_TSV_I_S1) in your Email Title.
