Tech Tips

Course distribution lists are available for instructors to email their entire class. The new lists will automatically be created for each "active" course and maintained to include only enrolled students. Please advise your students to check their Gmail regularly or forward it to their preferred email address so they do not miss important college communications. Click Here to find out more information about student email. To send you entire class an email; open a “Google Gmail Compose” window and start typing, PVC.2015.Spring and it will start populating with suggested completions. The course DL uses the following format:  PVC.2015.Spring.MAT.###.12345@paradisevalley.edu
