Week of 6 June 2016

The following information summarizes what is new in the edX platform this week.

Options for sending bulk email messages have changed. When course teams send bulk email messages from the LMS, they can now select one or more of these recipient groups: Myself, Staff and Administrators, and All Learners. When you send an email message to more than one of these groups, duplicate recipients are filtered out, so that recipients who are in more than one group do not receive multiple copies of the same email message.
