To keep track of their course activity, learners can take control of their Professional Learning Portal (PLP) course notifications. They can choose to receive periodic summaries or real-time notifications as events unfold, by following the outlined steps. It's important to note that this functionality is not applicable to ed2go courses.
To modify learner notifications, start by launching a course from the PLP Dashboard. Then, click on the learner name located in the top right corner to reveal a menu, and choose Notifications from the options available.
In the Notifications section, adjust settings for each of the following categories:
Once the desired adjustments have been made, click the Save button at the bottom of the page to apply the changes.
You can use the Contact Methods section to configure your mobile device for PLP notifications. To receive mobile updates, select "Register your mobile" and enter your Country, Carrier, and Phone Number when prompted. If you need to update your email address because you've changed it, retired, or left a district, please follow the Email Address Changed process. Please refrain from modifying any other settings in the Contact Method section.
Summary of Activity
You have the option to receive a summary of your course activity via email. This digest will include a brief news update or summary of each active course in the PLP. By default, new users will receive these notifications once a week (sent every Monday at 12:00 AM). If you want to modify the frequency or turn off these email notifications, simply tap the "How often?" drop-down field and choose the desired option.
Instant notifications refer to notifications that are received immediately on your computer, tablet, or smartphone. These notifications enable faster access to information. In this section, you can choose to receive SMS and/or email notifications for any PLP activity that interests you. For new users, the default settings for Assignments - assignment feedback released and Assignments - assignment feedback updated notifications are email. If you disable notifications, you will not receive emails when your instructor grades your assignments.
The Customize Notifications section provides two checkboxes that allow you to enable settings for including your current grade value in these notifications and receiving notifications from future courses.
Exclude Some Courses
To receive notifications from only certain courses, you can select "Manage my course exclusions" from the Exclude Some Courses section.
