The groups in the virtual campus I’m using at school are environments to interact with students. For every update, you can get an email notification provided you’ve configured that in your account.
Some of my students claimed they were never notified. I tried several things without being able to work out what was going on.
I eventually asked them:
Do you check your emails?
No. Never. Occasionally, they answered.
How do you communicate?
Young people in Argentina still use MS messenger, not useful for my purpose. But they also use Facebook.
I remembered iftt. It just didn’t make much sense the first time I tried it. Now it does.
It’s quite interesting to see to what extent new practices trigger new tech developments.
