You can use the Quickmail feature in Moodle to email all or a selected group of your students:

  1. Log in to http://moodle.bucknell.edu, and click on the link for your course within the Current Course List on the right-hand side of the page.
  2. 2. Scroll down on page until you see the “Quickmail” block on the right-hand side, just under the people block. Click on the “Compose New Email” link within that block:
  3. In the middle of the page will be a box containing "Potential recipients." Those will be all the students enrolled in the course, along with any teaching assistants. Within the Potential Recipients list, “Not in a section” just means that a student hasn’t been added to a group. There is also a Potential Sections box just above that containing the name of groups in the course (if you have already set up groups). To send an email message to a particular group of students, you would click on one of the groups in the “Potential Sections” box, and then you would click on the Add button to add all those students to the “Selected Recipients” list.

    To send an email message to all students in the course, would click on the Add All Button button in the middle of the page:

    Add All Users

  4. Scroll down to compose the email message, adding a Subject header and your message text in the appropriate boxes. When you are done, click on the "Send email" button to send the message to your students:
