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