Notifications provide users convenience as they are notified when an action they need to complete or see related to their interest is posted. Uvii provides notifications to both instructors and students, notifying them when action can be taken by tapping straight on the notification appearing on their mobile device.
When an instructor posts a prompt to the home feed, students will be notified of what has been posted whether it is a post or a survey. Similarly, when a student comments on any particular post or survey, the instructor will be notified that the student has commented on their post. One way students and instructors can receive notifications are through push notifications.
Follow the steps below to receive and open push notifications:
