Notifying Users They Have Been Added to a Course
When adding people to a group, you'll find a checkbox labeled "Notify these users via email." This email notification can be used for Instructors, Read Only Instructors, and for Students.
Checking this box will generate a simple auto-email alerting the user that they have a new course available. If a start date has been set for this group, the email will be sent on that date.
