A common scenario we hear from instructors is that they send out information and reminders to students by email, only to have students ask them questions covered in these emails in class. If you’re exploring other ways to communicate with your students outside of email, you might consider using a text-based tool. This allows you to “meet your students where they are”…their phones!
Remind101 is a free tool which allows you to connect with students, while keeping all phone numbers private. You can schedule texts to be sent at later dates and times and your messages are one-way, so students cannot reply and you won’t be bombarded with responses and questions.
