QUICK is QSITE's journal published three times a year. This hard copy publication contains QSITE news and information, celebrates member achievements, and features in-depth articles on developments in ICT education and ICT integration issues in Queensland education.

QUICK has a long and distinguished history, dating from January 1980, a year before the Computer Education Group of Queensland (CEGQ), the forerunner of QSITE was formed. The journal is distributed to QSITE members throughout Queensland and further.
