We are testing a text message update system called “Remind” this semester to help remind you when assignments are due! All COM210 students can sign up for the service. About two times per week, you will receive text message reminders with information about due dates, assignments and updates. Please note that you should still check the emails you receive from your professors and your TA for more information about assignments and grading.
Signing up for this service will not impact your grade in any way. Your information will not be shared with anyone. Text and data charges associated with your phone will still apply.
You can sign up for the Remind service for COM210 by following these instructions – https://com210.files.wordpress.com/2015/01/remindinstructions.pdf.
After sending your initial text you will be asked to send a message to confirm your name. Once you have done so, you will begin to receive messages as part of the text reminder pool.
You can sign up at any time during the semester. You are also able to opt out at any time for any reason without penalty.
