You may be able to send text messages from your University of Otago email using Vodafone's multiTXT service, an email-to-txt (text) and web-to-txt service. multiTXT allows staff and students within certain groups to send text messages to mobile devices from their University of Otago email or a web interface. Messages can be sent to one or many people at a time.
The multiTXT service can be used to communicate important information in a range of situations, for example to:
- Confirm meetings or bookings
- Schedule appointments or send reminders
- Advise a class that the location of a tutorial has changed, or that a fieldtrip has been postponed
It is also useful if you don't have, or don't wish to use, a mobile device.
