If it is possible, and i'm being blind/stupid/innocent, please let me know!
Thanks - DJ
Yes I would also like to mass message rather than mass email as it reduces the time involved. Sending an email requires the recipient to open their mail client to look for new emails whereas a new message is flagged on the message block in Moodle.
Any ideas of combining / adding the Quickmail select course users option with the message system?
This looks excellent, Much easier than having all the pupils checking their mail during lessons, or looking in a forum, especialy as some of my pupils do not have e-mail or have verry low skils within e-mail.
One extra I would like here would be the ability to attach a file so that I have a quick and easy way to get a help file to specific pupils without making it part of the course for all to see. I know that I wil be able to use activity locking to plan these events for many pupils but sometimes they still suprise you.
If you go into a course, click on the groups link in the admin block and move students in the student group. Now when an admin or teacher clicks on the participants list and select the student group, you'll be able to select a number of students and send IMs to them.
