Under Permissions, we can prevent students from sending messages to the entire class OR to individual course members. We must have an option to allow students to message their teacher! There needs to be a third option:

1. Conversations - send messages to entire class

2. Conversations - send messages to other course members (students)

3. Conversations - send messages to instructor

Thanks for sharing this idea. As it moves forward for broader consideration, you might want to add your comments to these related conversations:

Control Conversations at a Course Level

Make inbox rights a user level setting

I think this might already exist. According to the "Canvas Course Role Permissions" document, if you disable "Conversations - send messages to other course members" for the Student role, "students can still send individual messages to course teachers and course TAs."
