There is a student chat feature within enlight so student's can talk to their instructors with questions or requests for assistance on their courses.
Or, as an instructor, you may have a need to chat with a student, perhaps with a question or a nudge to keep them moving on their course.
This is different to marking student lessons, which is done under To be Marked on the side bar.

5. When they click on it, the message dropdown will appear for them to answer you.
