How can I put an announcement in more than one course at a time?


Set Course Availability

The Course Availability app in Qwickly allows faculty to toggle course availability on or off in one location for all courses. The task of hunting down this setting inside the course is simplified, taking just seconds to make all courses available.

Post Announcements

The Post Announcement app in Qwickly enables faculty to post the same announcement to any of the courses they are teaching. Not only is it faster to post multiple announcements with Qwickly, it's even faster to post a single announcement.

Send Email

If faculty need to send an email to all members of their courses, the Send Email app in Qwickly allows them to do just that, right from the Blackboard home screen. It's never been easier or faster to communicate with all your course members via email.  Qwickly also allows students to send emails to instructors in multiple courses at once.



In the Tools module of the Welcome Page in Blackboard Learn. See this document for a screen print of where the tool is located:



Due to technical issues we've experienced with Announcement Cast (see this knowledgebase article: and the increased functionality available through Qwickly, we are exploring the option of replacing the Announcement Cast tool with Qwickly.
