You can add a Messages block to your Dashboard. Your instructor may send you a private message or you may send your instructor a private message using the Moodle Messaging tool. The message will also be sent to email address in your Profile. So it is very important that you check your Profile email address at the beginning of each semester, and change it if you want. By default, the District sets your Peralta Student Email Address as your Moodle Email Address.

  1. On your Dashboard, click the "Customize this page" button in the top right area:
