Send E-mail to Students with Quickmail

Step 1: In the Quickmail block on the right-hand side of your course homepage, click on the "Compose" link in the block. 

Step 2: In the page that appears with the course participants names, check the boxes for each person you want to send an email. You can sort the participant list by either role (e.g. Student, Grading TA, etc) or by Group, if you are using groups. To do so, click either the "Select by Role" or "Select by Group" tab at the top of the Quickmail page. You can select all members of a specific role or group by clicking "Select all" next to that role or group's heading.

Step 3: Type a subject for your email and type the text of your email in the large box below the subject box.

Step 4: If you would like to send the email to someone who is not a participant in the class, you can type their name in the CC box. If you would like the students to be able to reply directly to the email, you must enter an email address in the the Reply To box (this could be your email, a grading TA's, etc). If you wish to add an attachment, seeAdding Attachments below. If not, go on to Step 5. 

Step 5: Click the "Send email" button at the bottom of the page.

Adding Attachments 

Step 1: Click on the "Choose or upload a file" button.

Step 2: In the new window, click "Upload a file." Now click "Browse," select the file you want to attach, and click "Upload." 

Step 3: The file you uploaded will appear in your files directory window. Click the "Choose" link to the right of the file name (you may have to scroll to the right to find it). Your file will now be attached to the email. Return to Step 5 in the instructions above.
