The GAT+ product Teacher Assist has introduced exciting new features!

 

Teachers are now able to connect with their students in a unique way to enhance productivity and student attention to relevant matters.

A Teacher has two options when connecting with the student through Teacher Assist. To launch a live chat or an announcement post to the student’s webpage.

To initiate a student interaction, make sure you have a classroom session started, this can be launched from a Groups or Classroom section.
