Notifications (Coming in December)


Notifications is a feature that will allow instructors and students to receive text (SMS) and email notifications for Announcements, Threads, Grade Postings, and Assignment Postings.  This feature allows a user to configure their preferences to receive notifications about course activity.

This is an optional feature!! Instructors and students can choose to not use it!


  • If you choose to receive notifications for discussion threads, the options chosen will be for all threads.  For example, an instructor and/or student cannot subscribe to only the prayer forum.  It will be all threads inside the selected course.  Remember, you do not have to choose to receive discussion thread notifications.  You have the option to choose which alerts you want to receive (Announcements, Threads, Grade Postings, Assignment Postings) and the modality (email or text).
  • Instructor and students can decide whether or not they want to use this feature.  This is an optional feature but will be seen on the top toolbar.
