    Students typically get instructor email addresses, yet the best method to organize course communications is for instructors to request that students send them messages only via the Canvas..."Inbox." Definitely, this menu item being named "Inbox" is confusing and inappropriate as the functionality involves both sending and receiving messages.

     

    To avoid confusion related to having to tell students "Send all messages to me via the Canvas...Inbox" this item should be renamed Conversations or Messages on the menu, at the option of the Canvas design team. Presumably, Conversations will be the preferred term as that word is already used extensively in the Canvas docs, this page being an example.
