Moodle messaging

January 4th, 2019 at 09:01

If you see this red flag next to your name at the top right of your Moodle page it means you have a message that you haven’t read. In Moodle, users can send messages to one another – like a sort of text message or Whatsapp – but people often ignore the notifications when one is received.

You usually get an email when a new message is posted. And you may be reading the content in the email. However, it’s still a good idea to glance at it in Moodle, just to check off that you’ve seen it.

Sending a message
If you’re sending a message to students, note that there is little context in this message (unlike in Announcements emails). It’s more like a text message or other messaging app.

So if you’re alerting students to something related to your course, make sure you include enough information, and sign off with your name.

It’s really important to keep an eye on your notifications, as there could be advice on assignments, urgent news from a module, or personal queries from students and staff.
