Using the Quickmail Block Moodle ISU
The Quickmail block is used to send messages directly to an ISU email account. This function cannot be turned off, so it is guaranteed to be sent to the selected email address(es).
This guide will help you to:
To use Quickmail in your courses, you first have to add it to your course page. This can be done in a few short steps.
Note: New blocks are added at the bottom of your blocks on the right side of the screen.
Note: Blocks can be moved in your course page on the right side only. For assistance, see Blocks in Moodle ISU
Emails can be sent to individual students, students in a select group, or to the class as a whole. In the Additional emails box you can type in email addresses for other recipients that do not appear in the Potential recipients list.
Note: You can add recipients based upon the groups they are in by selecting a group from the groups list and Clicking Add. This will send the same message to every member of the selected group.
Note: If you would like to receive a copy, Select Yes next to Receive a copy.
Quickmail will save your previously sent messages along with the date and time they were sent. You are also able to delete old messages by clearing your history.
In the configuration instructors can edit the settings for Quickmail. This includes a filter option, allowing students to use Quickmail, and receiving copies for every message you send.
