What notifications will my learners receive in Practice?
Practice sends manually created learners a few different types of email notifications. All notifications are defaulted to on. All email notifications will come from firstname.lastname@example.org.
The email notifications your learners receive are:
- Invitations to Organization/Group
- Welcome emails
- 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.
Invitations to Organization and Group
When Learners are invited to an Organization or Group they receive an email that says, “Join [ORGANIZATION]" or "Join [GROUP]". When they select the Let’s Get Started button they will be prompted to create an account. After they create their accounts they will automatically join the Organization/Group. Once they complete these steps they will receive a welcome email.
There are two instances where Learners will receive a welcome email, after they join your Group and/or Organization or they already belong to the Organization and they are added to a Group. If a Learner has been added to a Group the welcome email will include the Exercise schedule to all Exercises in the Group. Selecting the Let’s Go button will bring them to the Group page.
After selecting Forgot Your Password? on the login page and typing in their email address they will receive an email titled "Practice password reset instructions" with a link to reset their password.
The Daily Digest is a notification only for Learners sent around 10 am everyday in the Learner’s preferred timezone (defaulted to EST). In the digest, Learners may receive the following alerts:
- You have received a peer assessment for your response to [Exercise Title] = A Learner has feedback and scores from a peer that are ready for viewing.
- You have received an instructor assessment for your response to [Exercise Title] = A Learner has feedback and scores from an Instructor that are ready for viewing.
- A new submission is available for assessment in [Exercise Title] = There is a submission available for a Learner to complete peer assessment. They will only receive this notification if they have submitted to the Prompt & Response stage and have not submitted to Peer Assessment(s).
Learners receive an email notification when an Exercise opens. The email includes the Exercise title, the opening date & time of the Prompt & Response stage and the closing date & time for the final learning stage of the Exercise. Selecting the Let's Go button will bring the Learners to the Exercise's Overview stage.
These emails are sent to Learners 6 hours prior to stage closing. If a Learner has 2 or more incomplete stages set to close at the same time, they will only receive one email for the stage that is to be first completed. (i.e. If I’m a Learner who needs to complete both Peer Assessment and the Reflection stage, I’ll only get an email alerting me to complete Peer Assessment.)
Note: Even with email notifications turned off learners will still receive an email notification for Organization or Group invites, as well as, the reset password email notification.

When an instructor requests a new exercise response from a learner, the learner will receive an email notification. The notification contains a message from the instructor with directions on what the learner needs to change in their resubmission.
