Blackboard has always included a course messaging system which allows users to send messages to other course users which remain internal to Blackboard. These messages are not the same as email; course message and email are separate tools but both remain available inside of courses in Syracuse's Blackboard system

The biggest difference with Blackboard Ultra Navigation is that messages sent in courses are now consolidated and displayed on the main navigation menu. Users will see a badge with a count of unread messages. Clicking on "Messages" will display a list of current courses and organizations where you can click to access the course message or click the plus button to create a new message.
