Private Messages

You can use private messages to communicate with your students and other instructors or teaching assistants who are helping you with your class. With private messages, you can send messages to some or all of your students using your WebAssign class roster.

Private messages require only a valid WebAssign account and do not use email.

When you create a new course, by default students can send you:
  • private messages
  • Ask Your Teacher messages
  • extension requests
If needed, you can turn off any of these features.

New sections, copied sections, and courses created by copying a section all copy the communication settings from the original section.
