I use the Remind.com app to send announcements directly to students' phones. If you are unfamiliar, check out how it works at Remind.com. Currently, I am embedding a Remind.com widget using the html block so that the announcements display on my Moodle site in addition to being displayed on the students' phones. Is there a way to integrate this app into Moodle so that it displays the announcements in the calendar? I think a Moodle integration would allow for better styling of the widget. Currently, there is no way to control the way the widget displays as it is presented from the Remind.com website.
I was thinking of creating an account with the remind email. When I post on the announcements, remind would forward the email as a text to their phones.
