If you have kids, you’re sure to have seen the Remind app before. It’s used by many a homeroom teacher and baseball coach, but have you ever considered using it in your course?
The Remind App offers real time messaging either as text messages or to an app installed on your student’s phone. You can even schedule your messages ahead of time so you could set up reminders for every exam at the beginning of the semester that won’t go out until the day before that exam.
Signing up is simple and free, and if you already have a Gmail account you can just log in using it. You can even generate a .pdf with instructions for your students with just a click of a button.
