Truman Tech Break – RemindMay 12, 2015
Remind is a fantastic tool that allows for sending group or individual texts to an entire class, set of student workers, department, or other combination of people. Even better, it does not require ever collecting the participants phone numbers. This means that you gain all of the advantages of texting without having to cross those professional barriers of exchanging private numbers with students or others.
Remind is simple to set up. All you need to do is create a group or class and then send the invite via email to all of your participants. They can then submit their desired phone number to Remind (which remains unseen by anyone) and the process is complete. Sending a group text is as easy as typing it in to the web page and clicking send. You can also set texts to go out at specific times. Many more features are available through their mobile app.
