To view the classlist, click on the More Tools menu on the course navigation bar and select Classlist.
The Classlist is a directory for the course containing a full list of fellow participants. Users logged on to the online course system will have a green dot next to their name. You can view a user's personal profile by clicking on his/her Profile Picture. Clicking on a student's name will allow you to send an email to that student. You may use the instant message option to contact another student or your instructor.
The instant message tool allows you to talk to classmates and pose questions on a one-to-one basis. It sends a note to the person, and the person can answer you in real time if they are online. To send an instant message to your instructor or another student, click the check box next to the student or instructor name. Click on the Instant Message icon at the top or bottom of the list. Note that if the person in the Classlist doesn't have a green dot next to their name, the person is currently offline.
