Send Your Teacher a Private Message

A private message is a message that you can send to your instructor. The message might also be delivered to someone the instructor designated to read and respond to them, such as a Teaching Assistant.

You can send these messages from your Communication page in WebAssign. The instructor knows that the message came from you, and he or she knows which class the message is about.

This feature is displayed as a "New Message For" link in the Private Messages section of your Communication page.

If the link is not displayed and you want to have the option to send your instructor messages from this location, ask your instructor to enable private messages in WebAssign.

  1. Select a class from the My Classes drop-down menu.
  2. From the menu bar, click Communication.
  3. Under Private Messages, click New Message for name where name is the name of your instructor.
