9 Course Communication

Checking Course Announcements

It is your responsibility to read the course announcements on a regular basis. This is as simple as logging into the course and checking the Announcements forum at the top of your Moodle course.  It’s very important that you read these on a regular basis or you might miss something crucial in your course work.

Sending Course Messages

Choose Course Messages from the left-hand menu. Click on the Create Messagebutton. Choose your recipient from the TO list, and move them by clicking the right-facing arrow. A subject line is required. Compose your message and click Submit button

Course messages are private and should be used for confidential communication. For all other course communication use the Talk with the Professor forum or other public forum areas of the course.

Checking Course Messages

Course Messages appear on your homepage, or you can click on Course Messageson the left-hand menu. Click the Inbox to read messages.


Quickmail is another way to communicate.  It uses your CCC email to contact others in the course.  You can send mail to individuals or groups within your class.  Click on “Compose New Email” and choose the recipients.  After writing your message, scroll to the bottom of the form, and click “Send Email.”
