  • Messages (also called Course Messages) are private and secure text-based communications that occur within your course and among course members.
  • You must be logged into UB Learns to read or send Course Messages.
  • Messages are not new to UB Learns. The Messages page in Ultra Base Navigation provides a more efficient way to manage messages across all your courses.
  • Course Messages are different from emails sent from UB Learns, which are sent via an email server outside of UB Learns and are read by students using a separate email program.
