You schedule the time and type the text message for push notifications, telling users that a new lesson is released according to your chosen timeline. Sharing bite sized chunks of information over time helps students to digest and absorb the information better.
The push messages alert the students to the fact that new training material has been released.
Where do I add when a new lesson is to be released?
You set the time interval or date and time (according to the timeline you have selected) for when the next lesson is to be released when clicking “Add Lesson” when creating a course.
Once you’ve set the time interval for the next lesson you can add a push-notfication to alert the users of new available training material being released.
Please note that the push-notification feature is disabled from the start and that you have to activate it by clicking the checkbox – remember to type in your text message. Try to use a short and engaging message (maximum 100 characters)!
What is a reminder and how does it work?
Here you can schedule and formulate a reminder to users who have not yet reacted on your call above. You can either copy and paste the same text as the original push notification or create a brand-new text. Type in after how many numbers of hours from the initial push notification this reminder should pop up. Consider if you need a reminder and, in that case, which is the best time for a reminder. Example: The original push notification is sent 9 AM CET. If you would like a reminder to be posted 4 PM CET, then you have to schedule the reminder to 7 hours. Note that also this feature is disabled from the start and that you have to activate it by clicking the checkbox – remember to type in your text message. Try to use a short and engaging message (maximum 100 characters)
What if I would like to change the interval period for the push-notofications to be sent?
Decide when push notifications are allowed to be sent during the day (tentatively during working hours). Push notifications that are being held back during the night, will be sent the following morning. If you want the push notifications to be sent out during a specific time-span, go to "Edit Course" that can be found under “Settings.”
When using the Moblrn app in a smartphone or tablet users will get both a notification and an email.
When using the Moblrn web-app via a browser, users will only get an email.
