Reaching Students Through Intelligent Agents
February 6, 2024

Do you wish you could help your students celebrate a certain grade or give them a gentle nudge on a due date? iLearn has a set-it-and-forget-it tool to help you do just that. Intelligent Agents is an iLearn tool that will automatically send an email to a student based on an action (like achieving a certain grade on a quiz) or an inaction (like failure to submit an assignment) in a course. In this session, we will show what those automatic emails look like for students and link to resources on how to create Intelligent Agents in your own courses.
