Make communication easy
With UMail, people don't need to open their own email account to get in touch with you. Use UMail to provide a convenient way to get in touch with you from your Web site.
Find out what people really think
Encourage candid feedback by allowing people to send you anonymous email.
Evaluate your course
UMail is a great tool for getting feedback from your students throughout the quarter. Not only do you have control over where email is sent, but you can enable students to send anonymous email, encouraging open, honest feedback from them.
Encourage student reflection
Students who direct their own learning are typically more successful than other students. By asking your students to comment on your class, you will shift some of the responsibility for learning on to the students, and thus improve their educational experience.
