Sensei Email Notifications

Sensei Emails ↑ Back to Top

From v1.6, an email will be sent to learners when:

  • Their quiz is graded (either manually or automatically)
  • They complete a course

An email will be sent to teachers (the author of the course) when:

  • A learner completes their course
  • A learner starts their course
  • A learner submits a quiz for manual grading
Note: Emails are sent to the author of the course, not to the site admin, so if you’re not getting emails, make sure you are the author of the course in question.

Email Settings ↑ Back to Top

Go to Sensei > Settings > Email Notifications to see the email settings.

Here you can select which email notifications will be sent:
