Qwickly Plus Cloud increases the efficiency of sharing with members of multiple courses and organizations as well as simplifying tasks that need to be done repetitively in each course. Qwickly Plus allows you to add documents, post web links, send emails, post announcements and more to multiple blackboard courses and organizations in a single module.

Using Qwickly Plus Cloud Tools, you can upload and link to documents stored in ECU’s OneDrive for Business Cloud storage.  The Upload Cloud Content option allows you to upload content from your ECU OneDrive account to content areas in your Blackboard course(s).  The Link to Cloud Content Mashup allows you to link to content in your ECU OneDrive account from the Blackboard text editor. Save time by using the Link to Cloud option. As you update your course documents in OneDrive, your students will have access to the most up-to-date content
