Buzz: Product Feedback
This is extremely important to all of us (teachers and students have all asked for it) and we have been asking for it since we started using BrainHoney, and now as we switch to Buzz.
Ideally we would like there to be several different notifications, that by default are turned on for each account, then each user can go in and customize their own, in terms of which notifications they would like to receive and how (email, text, etc.)
Some of the notifications we would like to see:
When given feedback from a teacher is given on any work (assignments, assessments, blog/journals, discussion posts, etc.) and this one they should not be able to turn off – we have found all too often that students do not read the feedback.
When assignments are graded, with out without feedback – this one they can turn on or off if they don’t care to be notified immediately
When assignments are submitted – a setting in each assignment – some assignments are important to grade immediately and would be nice for teachers to be able to choose to get notification of when they are submitted
Any new posts to discussion boards – again, a setting in each discussion board where teachers can choose as some discussions are important and require immediate responses, such as Q&A/Help discussion boards
For both students and teachers
A notification of replies to discussion board posts
