Best Practices for Communicating With Your Students

These recommendations might help improve communication between you and your students using WebAssign.

  • Turn on email notifications so Ask Your Teacher and Extension Requests are automatically delivered to your inbox.
  • Use the Announcement feature to keep your students apprised of the course syllabus, class changes, and notices.
  • Remind students that they can get email notification of upcoming assignments or new announcements by clicking Notifications on their home page.
  • Enable student forums so classmates can discuss assignments and learn from each other. Instead of answering a student's question individually, post the question to the forum and let others comment. Provide clarification and direction as needed, and occasionally answer a question directly so students know that you are monitoring the forum.
