Join Kevin Kelly for an in-depth discussion in this video Sending class emails with the Quickmail block, part of Moodle 2.8 Essential Training.
- In another video in this chapter,…we looked at the News Forum,…and learned that every forum message…is also sent to your students via email.…Depending on your student's profile settings,…those forum messages may get lumped into a digest…with every other message they get…from a Moodle course that day.…There may be times when you want…to send a note immediately and on its own.…That's where the Quickmail block comes in handy.…If you don't see the Quickmail block in your course,…visit the block called Add a block,…and add the Quickmail block.…We learned how to do this back in chapter two.…
Remember, the Quickmail block is not a default block…in Moodle, so your Moodle administrator has…to install and enable it for your institution.…I'll scroll down, because we already have it in our Course.…First, click the Compose New Email link.…Then, Select the Recipients for your email Message.…We can click the Add All button,…to send a note to everyone in the class.…If your recipients are at the Group level,…we can select one or more Groups,…
