Discussion Board Improvements (New!)

Last Updated: Jul 31, 2014 10:01AM PDT
The Discussion Board has been redesigned!

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.
