How to Use the Instructor Inbox in the Widget
The Inbox helps you manage course communication with students and build better engagement. Using the CourseKey Widget allows instructors to monitor questions live as they come in and can help facilitate class discussions.
1. Open the CourseKey Widget, log in to your instructor account, and choose your course.
2. When you hover over the CourseKey icon, three options will appear. Click on View Inbox.
3. A pop-up will show on the screen with a list of all messages in your Inbox.
a. Click on a message to show the latest response in that message thread.
b. Click on the back arrow to return to the list of messages.
If you receive a new message in your inbox while using the widget, a notification will display in the pop-up. You can also check for new messages by clicking the refresh icon in the top right corner of the screen.
Anonymous Message Request
Students who may be shy or quiet have the option to submit questions anonymously to hide their name from their peers. When their messages are displayed in their widget, their names will be hidden. However, instructors can still view who submitted it via the Inbox in the web application. For more information, check out the article: link to appropriate article: How to Use the Instructor Inbox
