Can I send a direct message to mentors?

  • Sending direct messages to mentors is not encouraged and mentors are not obligated to respond.
    • Sending direct messages could not only overwhelm specific mentors, but also defeat the purpose of a public forum where learners benefit from similar errors/problems encountered by others.
  • If required, the mentor or staff will themselves initiate the direct message (e.g. in cases where they need to check your code to get a better understanding of the issue at hand).
  • Please post your queries as topics under relevant course categories so that it increases the visibility across our pool of mentors, staff and other learners , who can address your query much faster.
