Qwickly

This information applies only to the Original Course View. Based on how your institution has set up Qwickly, not all of the features may be available.

Qwickly is a tool in Blackboard Learn that lets you submit assignments or add files to your courses from cloud storage platforms. The platforms include Google Docs, Dropbox, and OneDrive. You can use Qwickly in a module on the My Institution tab or within your courses.

From the module, you can do these tasks:

  • Email instructors
  • Submit assignments files from your computer or the cloud
  • Email group members

Inside a course, you can use Qwickly to submit assignments and use the mashups tool in the editor to add cloud content.


The Qwickly module

From the Qwickly module, you can perform a number of functions.

For a video tutorial of these instructions, visit Student Experience Module.

Email your instructor

On the homepage, select the link to email one or more of your instructors. You can also send a file from your computer or a cloud storage platform.

Send email to a group

With Send Group Email, you can send an email to any group you are a member of in your courses.

Submit an assignment

With Submit Assignment, you can submit files from your computer or files from a cloud storage platform. After you submit your assignment, it will disappear from the list in Submit Assignments. You can view assignments by course or due date, if your instructor has assigned one.


Use Qwickly in a course

For a video tutorial of these instructions, visit Student Experience Course.

You can use the module to submit assignments. The way you submit an assignment inside a course depends on what type of assignment your instructor created.

A cloud assignment is created with Qwickly. In your course, these assignments appear with a cloud icon. When you open a cloud assignment, you will see "Qwickly Cloud Assignment" at the top of the page.

A native assignment is a normal assignment in Blackboard Learn. Your instructor may insert a link to a cloud file, but when you open a native assignment, you're brought to the Upload Assignment page.

Submit a cloud assignment

  1. Select the assignment link in the course content area.
  2. Choose where your file is located, such as Google Docs, or browse for it on your computer.
  3. Attach and submit the file to complete your assignment submission.

Submit a native Blackboard Learn assignment

If you submit a native Blackboard Learn assignment from within the course, you can add cloud document links with the mashups tool in the editor.

  1. In the editor, open the Mashups menu to see all of the options.
  2. Choose Qwickly Link Cloud File.
  3. In the window that opens, select where the file is stored and locate the file.
  4. Type text for the link to the file.
  5. Select Submit to insert the link into the editor.

Your file appears as a link in the assignment submission area.


Add cloud content in a course

You can use this same method to add cloud documents to other areas of your course that use the editor, such as discussions.

  1. Go to the course area where you want to add a file.
  2. In the editor, open the Mashups menu to see all of the options.
  3. Choose Qwickly Link Cloud File.
  4. In the window that opens, select where the file is stored and locate the file.
  5. Type text for the link to the file.
  6. Select Submit to insert the link into the editor.
