Is there a way for the webwork administrator to send a broadcast message to all of the students using webwork on their system? This has come up a couple of times, particularly when mid-semester upgrades to the server are necessary.

appears on the top level page of WeBWorK (for example:


has a "site information" message as of this writing )

and also on the front page of each course. I use that to post system messages -- such as planned outages.

There is currently no standard way to email every member
of every course hosted on a given system.
