Hi. I just wrote a meesage to all the student in my course and then I tried the student view to see what it looks like. Nowhere can I see any alert that tells the students they've got a new message. I think the normal thing would be to see a number in the message box to indicate 1 new message, or something.
The second thing I noticed and that I find strange is that if my message includes written text and a video, the student can only see the written text, unless the click to answer the message, then they see the video as well. Is that really right?
