Send a Direct Message to Your Teacher (Student)

You can easily send a "Direct Message" to your teacher. This is a private message will only be visible by your teacher. It will appear in your posts stream, but nobody else's. This can be a great way to communicate privately with your teacher.  

To send a Direct Message:

  1. Log in to your account.
  2. Type your message in the text field near the top of the page that says "Type your note here..."  
  3. Click the "Send To" menu, and select your teacher's name.
  4. Click the grey icons at the  bottom of the post if you want to attach a File, Link, or something from your Backpack.
  5. Click the blue "Send" button.

Your post will then appear in your post stream, but only you and your teacher will be able to see it!

Note: To find a Direct Message that you have sent or received, you must be on your homepage, not within a Group. Another trick to help sort your posts to see only the direct messages is to choose "Filter posts by" and then select "Direct."
