What is Messages?

The tool Messages works like an internal email system for the site. Like ordinary email clients the tool offers folders for received, sent and deleted messages. You can only send messages to other site participants.

Suggestions for use

The tool Messages can be a good alternative to use for courses where participants don’t want to use ordinary email for communication.

Things to consider

  • There are many ways to communicate in Mondo, which sometimes is perceived as confusing. In order to avoid that teachers and students have to check their messages in several different tools, it could be a good idea to rely on ordinary email instead, as the main communication channel. One reason is because a number of other tools in Mondo only can send messages to the ordinary email and not to Messages.
  • When you send a message you can tick the box "Send a copy of this message to recipients' email address(es)" if you want to send the same message to the recipients ordinary email address. It is important to note that the recipient cannot directly answer this message from his/her e-mail client. Instead he/she must go to the tool Messages to do so.
