bclnemail (Moodle Block)

Within the download area, there's a Moodle block called bclnemail.

It'll send emails to all your students in a Moodle course with their grades automatically pulled from Moodle.


Adding the Block to a Course

  1. Within your course, click "Turn editing on"
  2. In the side panel, find "Add a Block"
  3. Add "bclnemail"
  4. You should now see the block

Sending out Messages

Once you have the block:

  1. In your new block "Compose an email"
  2. Add students to receive emails.
  3. Fill in the fields:
    • Subject = subject in email
    • Message = the note at the top of the table
    • Receive a copy? = if you want a copy (I don't bother, stored anyway)
    • Make sure you "Include Progress Report" (default)
  4. Send Email

Including Parents &/or Counsellors

The bclnemail block will send your message to the following email addresses for each student chosen:

  • student email (of course)
  • Contact1  (if an email is found here, it will be included)
  • Contact2  (if an email is found here, it will be included)
  • Contact3  (if an email is found here, it will be included)

Instructions for admins (and teachers*) to add email addresses to "Contacts":

  1. Within the course, click on Participants
  2. Click on the student's name.
  3. Under "User Details," click "Edit Profile"
  4. Under "Other Fields," enter email addresses into "Contact1,2,3"

*Administrators can adjust profiles (by Moodle default), but teacher can't.  To allow teachers to add parent emails, a site admin needs to:

  1. In the user profile area, edit the teacher role to allow it to "edit user profiles"
  2. Under "assign system roles," assigned the teachers who you want to have this ability as a teacher through the system.
