There are two ways to start a conversation, the first way is to:
1. Click the 'Conversation' button in the navigation bar at the top of your screen.
2. Select the people in your community with whom you wish to start a conversation (only the people you select in the conversation will be able to see it).
3. Type your message and attach any documents or images you wish to share.
4. Click the 'Post' button and your conversation will be shared privately with the people you've selected.
The second way is by following the same process as above, however instead of clicking the 'Conversation' button in your navigation bar, use the conversation boxes that can be found on other teacher's profiles or at the top of your activity page.
