Communicating within the course community
Once you open the Course player, you can detect three different tabs Path, Learners, Discuss.
In the Learners tab, you can find all the users who have enrolled in this program. By clicking on a particular user card, you will be transferred to the user's profile. There, you can click on the Contact button and send them a direct message. The message will be sent to the user's inbox.
In the Discuss tab, you can find all the comments that have been posted on the course so far and you will be able to add a new one if you wish to. Please note that discussions are specific to each activity, so you'll want to revisit activities to see what others have said.
- In case you would like to ask anything from a specific user or member of the staff, you can go to the Discuss tab and tag them, by typing the @ in front of the username. They will receive a notification message in their inbox. The tag ability applies in the exact same way if you will post anything on the Community page.

- The people you have followed.
- The people you are following.
