Yesterday I posted a video about how to get started using Remind to send text messages from your computer to students and their parents. This morning a high school teacher asked me if it would be better to have just one large class in Remind or multiple classes in Remind representative of her schedule with multiple classes. My suggestion is to have a Remind class for each actual class. Then you can use the option to send the same message to all classes or choose to send it to just one class. That’s what I demonstrate in this new video.

Creating multiple classes in Remind is a great way to organize all of the classes that you teach. If you, like I did for years, have multiple sections of the same course you know that it’s almost impossible to keep them on the same schedule throughout the semester. That’s why I’d have a different Remind class for each class I taught. Then I could easily send the same message to all classes when necessary and send differentiated messages when necessary.
