About Discussions

The Thread Detail page is thoroughly redesigned yet maintains all of its existing functions. Highlights include:

  • All posts on one page: All of the posts in a thread are now visible at the same time on one page.
  • Role highlighting: Posts made by forum managers and moderators now contain the user’s course role and forum role.
  • Inline replies: When replying to a post, the content editor used to write a response appears on the same page, in the context of the discussion.
  • Post First setting: Instructors can use a new forum setting to require students to post to a forum before they can see other students’ posts.
