Students can be emailed directly when a new task or homework assignment has been set to complete, to ensure all students know about the task. This is also a great way to keep parents and caregivers up to date with assignments that are due for their child.
There are two ways to enter or update student email information. The first option to update the information is to navigate to the Manage Accounts tab at the top of your Control Panel.
Choose the class from All Classes - all students will be visible in that class.
On the right-hand side, you can enter the details under the Email Address column.
Enter the email address in the box, and click the green tick to save.
To update the email address, select the student's name and update the email address from the pop-up screen. Select Save.
To notify students of an upcoming task or assessment, tick the corresponding box under Optional Settings when creating the task or assessment. This means that students will receive the email notification.
The second option to update the email address is to navigate to the Tasks & Homework tab at the top of your Control Panel.
Click on the Get Started! tab on the task that you have assigned. Scroll down to Your Students and it will give you an option to Add email. Click this to add the email address and select the green tick to confirm.
Parents and caregivers can often be eager to find out how their children are doing in school.
When students are emailed about a new task, reminded about an overdue task, or their assessment results are released, parents and caregivers can be sent a copy of the same email as well.
To enter parent email address information in bulk, just add it as a column to your class lists and send them to us (see How do I enrol my classes? for more details). Our Student Enrolment team can add them in bulk from there!
Only one parent/caregiver email address can be associated with a student's account.
