Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Send Email to Students via Moodle (Quickmail)
Applies to: Moodle 2.8, 3.0, 3.2
Instructors can email individual students, groups of students, or all the students in their course site using the Quickmail block.
- Email sent through Quickmail will be appear as if it were coming directly from the sender.
- Example: Instructor Jo Blank sends a Quickmail to all her students. They each receive an individual email in their inbox from Jo’s email, email@example.com.
- Emails sent from the instructor to several participants will not show the other course participants' email addresses. It is similar to an email sent as a BCC (blind carbon copy) email.
- The subject line will automatically include the short course title.
- Example: Jo put “Week 1 Quiz Reminder” in the subject of her email. Her students see [ARTH1001] Week 1 Quiz Reminder as the email subject.
- Replies will be sent to the original sender by normal email.
- Example: Jo’s students can reply to her email, and she will receive it in her University Gmail inbox, not in Quickmail history.
