How do I use teacher chat?
Our Teacher Chat feature allows teachers to connect directly with students from their Progress Learning dashboard.
Only Primary Teachers can send a message to the entire class. Secondary teachers can send messages to individual students.
Step 1: On your teacher dashboard, click "Student Messaging" in the top right corner.
Step 2: The "Messaging" chat will then open. Here you can select an individual student or class to send out a chat or message.
Step 3: Teachers can click on the gear settings icon to customize when the chat feature is available for students or classes.
Step 4: Teachers can toggle off or on which classes have chat available and set time for availability. This can be found under your "Profile" from the teacher dashboard in the top right corner.
Step 5: When teachers log into their teacher dashboard, they will see a notification next to "Student Messaging" when they have a new message from a student.
Step 6: The teacher can then click on the new message and reply.
Step 1: When a student logs into their account, they will see a notification in the top right corner of their student dashboard, that they have a new message from their teacher.
Step 2: The student will click on the new message from the teacher.
Step 3: The student can see the availability of their teacher when responding and then reply.
