Get Inclusive Launches SMS Engage; Enables Text Based Online Course Assignments

Today Get Inclusive announced SMS Engage, our latest platform upgrade, that enables our customers to schedule and deliver course assignments via text message. 

“There were two huge drivers behind this new platform feature. First, over 60% of Get Inclusive learners complete our training through a mobile device. We know students and employees are engaging on mobile, so text-based course assignments made sense,” said Danika Collins, Director of Implementations at Get Inclusive. 

“The second driver is participation. It’s harder than ever to get the attention of learners and email notifications are increasingly inefficient. SMS Engage increases participation by delivering click-to-start course assignments right to your phone via text.”

How It Works

Get Inclusive customers will have two upgrade options to leverage this new SMS functionality.

  1. SMS Engage: Our fully automated text solution allows your system administrators to schedule and send course assignments through the Get Inclusive LMS. These communications are fully customizable. For existing Site License Customers, this functionality comes included in your package. Your only cost is bulk pricing for text sends based on anticipated annual usage volume. For a demo and pricing, click here
  2. SMS Link: For Get Inclusive Site License Customers who already have in-house SMS capabilities, we will provide you with SMS-ready short-links that can be sent to learners using your existing SMS service provider. There is a one-time $500 set-up cost for this upgrade. Contact your account manager or click here to schedule a call to activate SMS Link.

"Our new mental health and well-being courses are as timely as they are important," said Ali Waqar, CEO at Get Inclusive. "Mental health has never been more critical than it is today. Our goal and commitment is to reach 10 million students with these courses over the next 2 years."


The courses will be included at no-cost to over 100 colleges and universities that already have a Student License with Get Inclusive. For others, the courses will be offered for a reasonable flat-fee subscription price, with additional discounts for community colleges and any institutions experiencing financial hardship resulting from COVID-19. 


Texas Tech University Will Be the First to Launch

Dr. Amanda Wheeler, the Assistant Director of Outreach at the Student Counseling Center at Texas Tech University (TTU), also contributed to the development of these new courses. TTU will be the first institution to launch the new courses in 2020. 

“This course is a wonderful addition to college and university programming. I love that it gives simple tips and tricks to talk about mental health,” said Dr. Wheeler. “Most of all, though, I really love how it destigmatizes asking for help for mental health concerns! Mental health is just a part of being human, and we all struggle in some form or fashion with mental health at some point in our lives.”

To learn more about these new courses, please request a demo through the link below. Courses can be ready for deployment within 5-business days.

Get Inclusive to Launch New Mental Health Course

Watch this short and powerful sample from our new course (available for implementation September, 2020).

Download the outline of Get Inclusive's new Mental Health course. 

The biggest problem with mental illness isn’t mental illness. It’s is how we’ve learned to think about it. Fear, stigma, and shame are obstacles to help-seeking behavior. Fear, stigma, and shame are the legacy and symptoms of the silence, marginalization, and confusion about mental illness and the millions who live with them. By developing and reframing a better understanding about how we’ve come to think about mental illness, this learning experience prepares students to 1) take a proactive approach to mental health by noticing and acknowledging unhealthy habits and behaviors 2) ask for help when they need it, and 3) offer support and assistance to their peers whenever necessary.

Get Inclusive Launches Private Label Integrations to Improve Learner Experience, Increase Participation

It's more important than ever to create online learning experiences that reflect your institution's unique brand, learning objectives and policies. It's also more important than ever that these learning experiences reach your students and employees as efficiently as possible.

With that in mind, Get Inclusive is launching a new Private Label Integration to create a fully customized and integrated learning experience for all of your prevention and compliance training courses.

Key Features and Benefits: 

  • Enhanced Email integration ensures all course assignments are delivered from your .EDU domain, and not from a third-party domain (e.g. Our partner institutions have experienced a 2X increase on average in first-week completion rates with this new feature.
  • Deep Branding on all course and UX elements. It's time to move beyond basic branding. With Deep Branding your students and employees see your institution (not Get Inclusive) in the training. This includes:
    • Branded Content for Learners
    • Branded User Interface, Menu-bar, Buttons
    • Custom Videos in modules, e.g. Intro video
    • Branded Interactive Elements Infographics
    • Brand Representations, e.g., Campus Photos.
    • Branded Completion Certificates
    • Branded Dashboard for Learners and Admins

Updates to Title IX Training from Get Inclusive

Note: This blog was last updated on August 12, 2020. As more information becomes available, we’ll update the following information, as necessary. 

For a summary of Get Inclusive's approach to incorporating the new regulations into our training courses, please click here. For a summary of the changes relating to Title IX training, keep reading.


On May 6th, the U.S. Department of Education released its long-awaited final regulations governing campus sexual assault under Title IX.

Get Inclusive has received questions regarding how these new regulations will affect Title IX training requirements generally, and how our employee and students courses will be modified in response, if at all. 

The purpose of this blog post is to answer some of your questions relating to our approach and to share some resources relating to the implications of the new regulations. If you have questions about what’s presented here, please contact us at

Executive Summary

Get Inclusive leveraged both internal and external Title IX compliance expertise, including consultations with ATIXA/TNG, to help ensure our approach to any course updates and revisions meet the new requirements. 

All new course updates will now be available for assignment by June 15th, 2020. To request a detailed outline of the new course updates, please email us at

To the extent that your institutional policy updates require course changes, we encourage you to share these updates with your Get Inclusive account manager as they become available.

If you are not yet a Get Inclusive partner, but would like to learn more about our Title IX courses, please email us at

How will Get Inclusive’s employee training address the change in scope of mandatory reporters?

Based on feedback from numerous partners, we expect that most campuses will elect to maintain internal policies relating to mandatory reporters (also referred to as “Responsible Employees”). As such, training content and best practices relating to these obligations will continue to be a core learning objective in our employee Title IX courses. We will, however, remove any reference to the source of the obligation. 

For institutions that do decide to change their policies to reflect a more narrow scope of reporting obligations, we will offer a more narrowly focused version of our employee Title IX training that instructs on how to handle a student disclosure. Irrespective of any reporting obligation, we know that  faculty and staff will continue to receive disclosures. And as we know, mishandling of these disclosures can both create trauma for the reporter, and liability for the institution. 

If we update our internal policies, how will this be reflected in Get Inclusive’s training?

Get Inclusive will continue to enable our custom policy upload tool, definitions customizations and policy acknowledgment tracking within our courses. To the extent your institution updates its policies or other information, we can easily update your courses to reflect these new policies. 

If our campus narrows the scope of our mandatory reporter policy to exclude a specific population (e.g. faculty), will that population still need to receive Title IX training?

Yes. The requirement to train employees on Title IX has not changed. It may change which course version they receive from Get Inclusive, but the requirement to train has not changed. 

Will Get Inclusive enable campuses to post our training online to meet the new posting requirement outlined in section 106.45 (b)(10)(D)?

We are happy to make our training content available to the public on your website. That said, we do not interpret this requirement to extend to our Title IX employee training courses, so while we’re happy to accommodate these requests, we do not believe it’s obligatory to do so. Our interpretation is that the publication requirements relate only to training materials for Title IX Coordinators, investigators, decision-makers, and any person who facilitates an informal resolution. Our Title IX employee training is not specifically intended for this audience. But again, we will gladly make our content available for your campus to post online, if requested. 

Will Get Inclusive’s student Title IX training be updated?

For both student and employee Title IX courses, we will be presenting the new definitions of sexual harassment under Title IX and any relevant state laws as points of information. These are relatively minor changes, however. 

We are, of course, continuing to develop new student courses (mental health & wellbeing, full-length AOD, ongoing/booster content, etc) as well as scenario and content updates to existing courses. 

How will Get Inclusive address conflicts between Title IX and state law?

The new Title IX rules represent the floor or minimum requirements. As such, if your state requires more strict rules, for example, the definition of a mandatory reporter (ex. SB212 in Texas), this is not in fact a conflict, as Title IX doesn’t prevent more strict policies or requirements. 

If still you believe there’s a viable conflict, see minute 50:00 from this ACE webinar for additional perspective on precedence. Click here to watch

When will Get Inclusive’s course updates be made available? 

June 15th, 2020. For an outline of the new course updates, please email us at
