Qwickly Course Tools provides several functions for working with multiple courses.  You can send e-mails, create course content and assignments, make your courses available, or post announcements in multiple courses at once.  This tool is similar to the Qwickly module formerly in the top-right corner of the previous Scholar screen.

Accessing Qwickly Course Tools

To access Qwickly Course Tools, click on the Tools link on the left side of the main Scholar page.

Then, click Qwickly Course Tools.

Sending E-mail

To send e-mail to your course(s), click on the Send E-mail link at the left.

Select the course(s) that you'd like to e-mail on the left.

Choose whether you want to e-mail everyone, or only particular roles (student, instructor, course builder) in the class.  Unless you have multiple instructors in the course who don't need to receive the e-mail, it's usually best to leave it as Everyone.

Choose Role

Put in a subject, and type your e-mail.  

To attach files to your e-mail, click on the Computer link on the bottom.

Making Courses Available

Qwickly Course Tools availability works pretty much the same as it did in the old Qwickly tool. To use it, click Course Availability.

You will see toggles for all of your courses.  Click the relevant toggle to change the availability status of your course.

 Availability Toggles

If you have a lot of courses, you can search for a course, view only available courses, or view only unavailable courses with the boxes on the top.

Posting Announcements

You can also post announcements in multiple courses.  To do so, choose Post Announcement.

Post Announcement

Select the courses that you'd like the announcement to appear for on the left.

Select courses

Give the assignment a title, and type the text of the announcement in the textbox.

Set Up Announcement

If the assignment should only be displayed at certain times, enter the "Display After" and "Display Until" dates.  If you want students to receive the announcement by e-mail immediately, check the Send E-mail box.  Otherwise, the announcement will be sent in a daily digest.

Display Time

Click Submit, and the announcement will be created.

Adding Items/Files to Multiple Courses

Qwickly Course Tools allows you to add content such as files, information, or links to your course.  These are added in as items in your courses.  To add in content, click on Create Content at the left.

Create Content

Select the Course(s) in which you'd like to add content.
