          For my college, this is not a minor priority. Early, private feedback to students in discussion forums is an important pedagogical feature.

          I agree with Bill, and the private aspect has become important as we try to comply with FERPA regulations with regard to the display of anything that could be considered student assessment information.

          It's almost impossible to do the work that I do without this option.
          In an ideal world, I'd want it to be available for students to reply privately to other posts, as well as tutors, for courses that involve sharing responses to art work and creative writing.

          Faculty are always asking for this. Can it get implemented for 2.6/2.7?
