Send and View Your Direct Messages (Teacher)

You can easily send a Direct Message (private post) to any of your connections or students in your groups. Students only have the ability to direct message the Teacher owners or Co-Teachers of the Groups they are in. You can send any type of post as a Direct Message to an individual student or connection.

To send a Direct Message:

  2. Select and type your post (any post type) in the center Post Box.
  3. Type the name of the student(s) and/or connection(s) in the "Send To" field
  4. Click "Send."
