    We just added the Whisper Extension to our student chromebooks. Is the messaging only one way? Right now we only can send messages from the teacher to the student. Can students reply?

      As it stands today, Whisper is intentionally one-way messaging. We’re chewing through what it would look like to have students respond without it just becoming too similar to Google Hangouts.

    Do the students also need the extension? Just tried it and the message was sent to their gmail, but no notification on their browser.

      Hi Joe,

      Yes, the students need it as well in order to get browser notifications.

    Hello Dr. Craft,

    Totally loving ChecKMark!

    Whisper is only showing for 30 students, we have 35 in Google Classroom. Is there a class size limit?

    Thank you!

      Hi Irene!

      I happened to hear about this issue today from someone else also, and it’s the first I’ve heard of it, so I’ll look into it. Thanks for letting me know about it!

    We can’t get Whisper to work in our system. When we go to the Chrome store, and get the extension, the icon appears, in the Chrome toolbar, but when hovered over, it just says loading. Our tech director has even gone into into the Google Admin part, ran all the logistics and it should work – but it doesn’t! We were excited to use this, after hearing you at the GaETC, but kind of frustrated now. Please help!

      Hi Terresa,

      Whisper is down at the moment. We’re working hard to fix it, so stay tuned. You can follow along at the EdTechTeam Product Development FB page for updates. https://www.facebook.com/edtechteamproductdev/
