Blackboard Learn: What is Qwickly?

Have you ever needed to post an announcement in multiple sections of the same course?  What about emailing students from multiple sections of the same course?  Before, this was a laborious process in Blackboard.  Now, it is much easier.

Qwickly is a user-centric productivity platform for Blackboard Learn™ allows faculty the ability to interact with multiple classes at once. Instructors can post the same announcement to multiple courses, or send an email to all students they teach in just a couple clicks, or view which classes have items that need grading...right from the Blackboard Learn™ home screen.

To use Qwickly, complete the following instructions:

1) Login to Blackboard.  Upon logging in, you will notice the Qwickly application on the right hand side of the screen (see screenshot below).

 

2) Simply click on the action you want to complete.

 

a).  Send Announcement: Clicking on "Post Announcement" will produce a pop-up window.  Select which courses you want your announcement to be posted in on the left hand column.  Then, create your announcement in the right hand column.  Clicking Submit will post the announcements in all of the sections you selected (see screenshot below).

 

b).  Send Email: Clicking on "Send Email" will produce a pop-up window.  Select which courses you want your email to be sent to on the left hand column.  Please be aware that ALL students in the selected classes will receive the email.  Then, create your announcement in the right hand column.  Clicking Submit will post the announcements in all of the sections you selected (see screenshot below).

 

c).  Needs Grading: Clicking on "Needs Grading" will have the Qwickly window expand so that you can see all of your courses in which you have items that need grading.  In the parentheses, you will see a number representing the number of items that need grading for that section.  Clicking on the section link will take you into the grading area of that course (see screenshot below).
