The Quickmail block is added to each AsULearn course by default. Send email to the entire class, groups, or individual students. If the Quickmail block is not visible on your course site, a Teacher must add it.

Step-by-step guide to Add Quickmail block


The Quickmail block is not available in the Student view.

  1. From the main course page, click the gear menu (top right) and select Turn editing on

  2. Click the hamburger icon (top left) to open the drawer menu and select Add a block at the bottom.

  3. Select Quickmail from list of blocks. If it is not in the list, it is already turned on for your course.

Students can reply to these email messages and the replies will go to your email account.  NOTE:  Unlike the Announcements Forum, when you send Quickmail, there is no student-accessible copy of the message posted in the course.  You, as the teacher, have access to your Quickmail "history," but the messages you send to students are only sent to their Appstate Gmail account and will only be visible there.
