The Course Admin is part of your LessonFlyer admin panel and is where you build courses and interact with students.
The 4 sections of your admin panel pointed out in the screenshot below make up what we refer to as the Course Admin.
The Students section of the admin panel (shown below) is where you view and manage the students enrolled in your courses. You can view a student's progress in a course. Enable or disable their enrollment. Update their passwords. View any payments received from them. Issue refunds. Send copies of receipts. View their quiz and test results and more.
The Message Center is where you communicate with students so all conversations are in one place and organized.
The Message Center's user interface is a hybrid design between traditional email (i.e. Outlook, Gmail) and text messaging (iPhone, Android).
Conversations with a student are grouped together and viewed as a thread. However, there can be multiple separate conversations (threads) with the same student (unlike how it's done in your phone's text messaging app where all messages with a person are in the same thread).
