This summer I saw a video on sending personalized automated birthday cards to your students. It piqued my interest and I decided to try it out this year. While there are other ways to collect your student information, I started off with a Google form to collect birthdays and a few other pieces of information from this. I plan to send this out in my welcome letter to students for my classes and post in the week 1 getting started materials.
Give it a Try!
The work is front-loaded and you learn a few more tools that can come in handy! Once you get to know Autocrat, I see all kinds of uses for this! You can also set this up for end-of-semester messages to students, some sort of congrats or recognitions, etc.
