Instructors are constantly looking for different methods to communicate information to their students. Remind 101 is a tool which allows instructors to send text messages via their cell phone quickly and efficiently.
Once instructors have registered, they then prompt their students to register to use the service. All cell phone numbers are kept private and since students are always checking their phones, this is useful as a great reminder for upcoming course events.
Currently, this texting service is free and registering to use it is easy. Go to remind101.com for additional information, or contact the Faculty Technology Center at (269) 387-6958.
