Engage Students with Built-In SMS

One of the most direct and effective methods of communicating important, time sensitive information to a student is to send them a text message via SMS. Typically these are reminder-style message such as “Your placement is starting next week” or “Don’t forget to return your placement agreement” and the like.

Today we have launched built-in SMS functionality in Pathways. This allows you to send messages directly from the student information screen in a few clicks. As SMS messages are often similar we’ve built in an SMS template library so you can set up common messages and then send them with only a few clicks.

Better yet the individual sms sending is free.

Need to send bulk SMS to multiple students at once? Add an SMS package to your Pathways plan allowing you to send an sms to entire class or student list in seconds. Keep your eyes peeled in Pathways for the next few weeks as the rollout has already begun in alphabetical order. Sorry if your name starts with Z!
