How can I message my students?

When students are working on IXL, you can watch over their shoulders virtually in your Live Classroom and send them encouraging messages to offer support, share a helpful resource or acknowledge their hard work in real-time. Just sign in to your account, and on Analytics, click Live. When you want to reach out to a student, click on the airplane icon in the upper-right corner of the student’s tile. 


Select one of our quick messages or write your own! Live Messages do disappear an hour after they are sent so make sure you aren’t sending something you’d like them to reference in the future. 


Immediately after the message is sent, an airplane icon and your comments will appear in the student’s green navigation bar in the upper-right corner of any page on IXL. The student can react to your message by selecting one of four icons, and you can follow up as needed!
