This morning I wanted to send a message to those students in my class who hadn’t yet submitted the first homework assignment at Moodle.
A little Googling led to this solution. It requires several steps, but I found it easy once I put it all together. You can see the process from start to finish in this 1-minute video, or scroll past it to see the step-by-step with screenshots.
Find your way to “Reports” and “Course Participation”
Select the activity and show “Post” actions
Ask Moodle to find the students who haven’t submitted the activity
Select “Send a message”
This sends a message to students within Moodle. The students should also receive an email alert.
