Push Messaging

Push messaging in TEACHUME refers to a communication feature that allows administrators, teachers, and the TEACHUME platform itself to send real-time notifications, alerts, and messages to users’ mobile devices or web browsers. These notifications are “pushed” to the users without them needing to actively check their TEACHUME account or email for updates. This feature is particularly useful for delivering timely information, announcements, and reminders to enhance user engagement and communication within the TEACHUME learning management system. Here’s an introduction to push messaging in TEACHUME:
