Use Qwickly for email and Announcements in several classes
News about "Qwickly": Qwickly is a Blackboard tool that lets you send email and post announcements easily, to one or more of your classes, in a single step.
To begin, go into any of your class sites. Click the main Tools area and select Qwickly. This opens Qwickly, with access to all of your courses.
A recently added feature in Qwickly gives you instant access to the Needs Grading page in any of your courses. To enable that, go to the Qwickly page and click the blue "gear" icon. On the Qwickly User Settings page, check the box for Needs Grading. To keep the list short, un-check the box to Show Unavailable Courses. When you enter Qwickly again you will see the option for Needs Grading.
