Send an email communication to users enrolled in a course.

Steps in Snap: Course Tools > Edit course blocks > Add a block > Quickmail

Steps in other themes: Turn editing on > Add a block > Quickmail

  • By default you can send messages from within the course to already created groups, and entire course, or specific users. The message can also contain an attachment and history of the messages sent are kept within the block. Students can also use this block if the settings for the block are edited.
  • Create a custom signature that can be added to your emails.
  • View your drafts and history.
  • Configure Quickmail to allow students to use it, add breadcrumbs to the email, add the course name, and to receive a copy.
