It is so inobtrusive, that flashing envelope, that it has occasionally taken me a couple of days to even notice it. One needs - or perhaps I should say: I need - to consciously train oneself to look for it on a regular basis.

You can also set up your account to receive an email when you get a PM.

Yes. Some people don't even know that there is such a thing as a PM (private message within the body of the forum of the whole.)

Due to coronavirus considerations, my teacher is planning to switch from in-person to on-line lessons for the time being. I expect others will be thinking along similar lines.
I guess we will all be learning the mechanics together.
Perhaps we could gather some "best practices" for equipment setup, etc. and post them to the forum.

Great idea! I just bought a webcam for use in Skype lessons since my teacher is not conducting live classes at her studio for the length of this epidemic.

Trying to get up to speed with Skype video conferencing experience.

We tried this a few nights ago using a Surface Pro 4 and Zoom. Worked very well. The teacher had already been doing online lessons when needed. She has given the students a choice now. I plan to go in person for my lesson this week, but that could change depending on how things play out.
