This document describes the functional requirements and specifications for a new communication tool called "Message Center" (MCT).  The tool is designed to meet the needs of both teaching/learning activities and collaborative work (e.g., committees, research projects, etc.).  It is designed to integrate closely with Sakai services (roles, groups) and other tools (Resources, Gradebook, etc.).
While the terms "instructor" and "student" are used in this document, the MF tool must ensure that its use for a genomics research project or tenure review committee seem as fitting as its use for a course.
