Course Messages:

Each course has a private "Messages" tool that allows class members to communicate with each others as well as with the course instructor. Users must be logged into the course to access, read and send messages. Messages cannot be sent or received outside of the members in the course. Depending on the course instructor, the messages tool may be available on the course menu and/or in a content area.

Click the course messages tool to display its content on the Content Frame. By default the messages tool contains two folders, Inbox and Sent that cannot be deleted or renamed. To view messages sent to you click the "Inbox" link to display the "Inbox" content. You can create folders to organize messages.
