Q: How do I take attendance, make announcements or send out emails to an individual or all of my courses without having to go into each course?
A: Did you know that there’s a tool that will do all of this and it’s easy to use? Meet Qwickly.
You can use Qwickly to save time by managing course communication and content in multiple courses at once.
To access Qwickly, click Tools (left menu bar) > Quickly Course Tools
Select the tool you want to use from the Qwickly Course Tools menu (left menu panel). You will have the option to choose multiple classes at the same time.
