Congratulations on laying the groundwork and getting your school up and running. Now it's time to build on that momentum and improve activation from your students and teacher to ensure no one gets left behind while remote learning.
To help boost engagement, we've prepared some tips and tricks to improve your numbers and get your school on track to becoming Atomi power users.
First up, if you're not sure which users are still yet to accept their invitations you can:
- Go to your account settings by clicking your name at the top right of your dashboard, then click Settings.
- Click on the Users tab.
- Select the Pending filter.
To get pending members set up and active, we recommend the following:
1. Check if your setup is correct
If there's an issue with your setup some users might be missing out on access through no fault of their own. We recommend you double check that there are no spelling mistakes or typos in the emails of the users that you've invited. (This is more common than you’d think.) Secondly, check that Setup Mode has been turned off on your school account. Lastly, you should archive any students that have graduated or teachers that have left your school.
2. Bulk resend invites to pending members
Sometimes invitations can be missed, overlooked or just forgotten about. You can resend invitations to any pending user on your account in a couple of clicks.
Here are the instructions.
3. Leverage your communications plan
However you're communicating as a school whilst learning online, whether by emails, video calls or even your LMS, make a point of reminding your students and teachers that they need to accept their Atomi invitations. You can even ask them to pull out their phones, tablets or devices and do it on the spot. There's no time like the present!
While you’re there, why not get them to install the Atomi app.
4. Ask your teachers to lead the charge
Your teachers can help you improve your activation rate by ensuring their class has been set up correctly and their students have logged in. Under the Students tab in any class, a student that hasn't accepted their invitation will appear greyed-out. A teacher can resend an invitation to a pending student by clicking on the three dots icon next to their name, and selecting Resend invite.
If you’re still stuck
You or your staff can always reach out to the remaining pending users one on one for extra encouragement. As always, if you're facing any issues you can always get in touch with our team. We've seen lots of interesting cases which means we can often share advice based on what's worked at other schools.
