Messages & Forums (ie Message Center)


Michelle Wagner & Megan May


Message Center (MSGCNTR) is a coupling of tools:

  • Forums is a communication tool that instructors or site leaders can use to create an unlimited number of discussion forums for their course or project sites. The Forums tool is designed to be an effective tool for both academic and collaborative work, and is integrated closely with other tools such as Resources and Gradebook.
  • Messages is a communication tool that allows site participants to communicate using internal course mail. In addition, it supports messaging between groups.
  • Synoptic view
