What email notifications will I receive in Practice as a learner?
Practice sends you a few different types of email notifications. The default notification setting for manually created learner accounts is set to on. Scroll to the end of this article to learn how to manage your notifications.
The email notifications you receive are:
- Invitation to an Organization or Group
- Welcome Message
- Reset Password
- Daily Digest
- Exercise Open
- Stage Closing
- New Response Request
Note: Learner accounts that are created through LTI only receive the Reset Password email.
View Group or Organization Invitation
When you are invited to an Organization or Group you will receive an email with the subject line “Join [ORGANIZATION]" or "Join [GROUP]." Select the Let’s Go button to create an account and join the Organization/Group. Once you complete these steps you will receive a welcome email.
View Welcome Email
There are two instances where you will receive a welcome email, after you join your Group and/or Organization or you already belong to the Organization and you are added to a Group. If you have been added to a Group the welcome email will include the Exercise schedule to all Exercises in the Group. Select the Let’s Go button to be brought to the Group page.
View Reset Password Email
After selecting Forgot Your Password? on the login page and typing in your email address you will receive an email titled "Practice password reset instructions" with a link to reset your password.
View Daily Digest
The Daily Digest is sent around 10 am everyday in your preferred timezone (the default is U.S. Eastern Standard Time). In the digest, you may receive the following alerts:
- "You have received a peer assessment for your response to [Exercise Title]"
- "You have received an instructor assessment for your response to [Exercise Title]"
- "A new submission is available for assessment in [Exercise Title]"
Note: You will only receive the last notification if you have started the Prompt & Response stage and have not submitted any Peer Assessments.
View Exercise Open Notification
You will receive an email notification when an exercise opens. The email includes the exercise title, the opening date and time of the Prompt & Response stage, and the closing date and time for the final learning stage. Click the Let's Go button to go to the Exercise Overview page.
View Stage Closing Notification
You will receive a Stage Closing email six hours prior to a stage closing. If you have two or more incomplete stages set to close at the same time, you will only receive one email for the stage that needs to be completed first. For example, if you need to complete both the Peer Assessment and the Reflection stages, you'll only get an email alerting you to complete the Peer Assessment.
Note: Even if your email notifications are turned off, you will still receive Organization Invitation emails, Group Invitation emails, and the Reset Password email notification.
View New Response Request
When an instructor requests that you submit a new exercise response, you will receive an email notification. To create a new exercise response, click the Let's Go button that displays in the email.
To turn notifications off, click your name in the top right corner.
