Often it is useful to send quick communications to the students: the shift of a class, a reminder of a deadline and the notification of a last minute scheduled event are some examples where the availability of a direct and immediate communication tool for teachers would help.
This feature is available in the Moodle environment as an additional block that teachers can add to their courses. Teachers (but also teaching assistants) can select who will receive the message: an individual, a set of students or the whole class, and specify the content of the message. The system will immediately send the message to the selected recipients.
