Moodle has an internal messaging system that allows users to communicate with each other. This is different than emails sent through Moodle, which are sent to your VTC email account.
To read your recent messages:
From the Navigation block (left hand side of your courses), click the “My Profile” link. The resulting turn down menu gives you several options. Click “Messages.”
At the next page, from the Message Navigation drop-down menu, select “recent conversations.” This shows any messages you have received.
