    Hello everyone, Since I become busy over and over, I couldn't keep up with some of the courses that I enrolled in. I missed the deadline and wondering if these courses will be provided again sometime later. It's not about the certificate, but I'm really interested to learn and finish all the requirements. So, it would be very helpful if you guys re-open the courses from time to time which will help me and other learners to manage our time and continue learning the subjects we love. Thank you Bandar A. Learning Design & Technology. PhD.

Then fill in the body and add attachments. When you are finished, click the Send button in the top left corner. To send an email to more than one person, click on the checkbox next to the people you want the email to be sent to. Then click on the email icon at the top of the column. This time the To: field is pre-populated with all of the users’ email addresses that were selected. Finish creating the email message like before and click the Send button. From the Classlist tool, you can also email everyone on the classlist at once. To do this click on the Email Classlist button. The screen will refresh showing you everyone that is on the classlist. Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and click on the Send Email button. Then finish creating the email message like before and click the Send button. Then click the Close button to return to the Classlist tool. You have now successfully used the Email Tool.
