May I post a private direct message to a mentor or DeepLearning.AI staff?

In the spirit of community, we encourage all conversations to happen publicly so that others can benefit from them as well. This allows everyone in the community to search for queries they have and find answers quickly.

However, in circumstances when the mentors may need to converse with you privately (for example, looking at your notebook code), they would directly message you themselves or ask you to follow up.
