It seems this feature to email students is functional in the Journal Plug In now. An automated email is sent indicating:
'Instructor name' has posted some feedback on your journal entry
for 'Assignment'--Open Sept. 12-16'
You can see it appended to your 'link'.
I am looking for a feature to turn this off. Should this be in the features within the tool and if so, where, or at the institute administration level?
