How do students respond to questions?

Once a teacher sends a question to their student, the student will get an email notification to log into Along so they can review it and respond.

Whenever a teacher sends a new question or replies to a student's response, the student can see and respond to the questions on their Home page when they log into Along.

  1. The most recent question will be displayed to the student on the Home page:



  2. All questions are organized into New questions, Answered questions, and Expired questions on their left navigation. Students should review any new questions first.

    Note: click the arrow in the bottom-left corner to expand the navigation sidebar. 



    • New questions: Any questions the teacher has sent that the student has not replied to.
    • Answered questions: Any questions that the student has already replied to. This could include any questions that the teacher has responded to.
    • Expired questions: Any questions that are older than 60 days. This could include questions that students haven’t answered.
  3. If the student clicks on a new question from the organized list, they will be able to view the question from the teacher and respond with Text, Audio, or Video.



    • In order to record a video, they will need to grant Along access to their camera and/or microphone. Learn more here if you need assistance with granting these permissions. 
  4. Students can re-record or add an optional note to their answers. When they are ready to turn it in, they select Send.
