Notifications for LMS users #1742

We have an existing issue for "expanded notifications" for our non-LMS offering, but the LMS app does not have any notifications built in.

Some questions to consider:

What should users notified about?
Might include (among other things):

  • new top-level annotations from other group members
  • new replies (to the user, or to other group members)

Where and how should users be notified?
In app? Via email? Both? (We don't currently collect email addresses for LMS users)

How do we avoid creating too much "noise" for users?
If a professor is notified every time an annotation is made, and a class of 20 students makes 5 annotations each, that's 100 notifications for the professor. This can get unwieldy quickly.

...I am sure there are other things we need to consider, but this issue is serving as a placeholder.

This instructor would like all course group members to receive notifications any time someone annotates within the LMS course group.
