==Delete your messages==
 
If you have a lot of messages in your message history, you can delete these by going to the ''User menu > Messages'', hovering your cursor over a message and clicking the X. Note that you are only deleting messages you sent and received; they won't be deleted from the lists of others involved in the exchange. See the screencast [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3o90NRGuz7I Messages in Moodle 3.0] for a demonstration.

You'll be able to do  more of your course from your smartphone with releases 2.4 and 2.5 of the mobile app. See [[New for mobile]] for more information. You can expect to:
 
 
*search for and enrol in courses (2.5)
