How to Communicate with Instructor and Students
Moodle provides different ways to communicate with others: messaging and e-mailing (internal or external/Internet).
Moodle's Messaging tool works like most instant messaging systems, but only within the Moodle environment. You can send and receive quick messages to/from ANY other Moodle user, add users to your contact list, block users from sending you messages, and view a history of your messages.
Likewise, Moodle's internal Course Email tool is similar to the Internet e-mail program you use (with its Inbox, Compose, Attach and Send functions) but works only within the Moodle system. Moreover, unlike messaging, e-mailing is restricted to participants in a given class.
How to have email notifications sent from course email to your email outside of Moodle:
- Go to the course
- Go to the mailbox
- Click preferences on left
- Select the option "Receive copies of messages in my email" in dropdown menu
- Click OK
- Repeat for every course you are taking
