What is Qwickly?


Qwickly allows instructors to do common course tasks and upload cloud content from OneDrive, Google Drive and DropBox. Using the Qwickly module
located on the myCourses dashboard, instructors can post announcements and send email to students across multiple courses, post links, calendar events,
and check what needs grading in a course.


From the myCourses dashboard, locate the Qwickly module.
