To more easily discover when you have new course messages, you will want to add the My Messages module to your course Notifications page.
The My Messages module works with the Messages tool, not the Email tool. Emails are sent outside of Bb Learn, to faculty and student email email addresses. Messages remain inside Bb Learn.
First, from your BB Learn Notifications page, click the Add Module button on the top left.
You will now be presented with a list of modules which may be added to the Notifications.
To add the My Messages module, scroll down the list until you find My Messages.
Click on the Add button just below the description. The Add button will change to Remove and there will be a brief notification of the module being added to your page. It will look similar to this:
Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the OK button in the lower right of the screen.
Click on the OK button.
You have now added the My Messages module to your module page.
