Manage Active Discussions

Discussions enable you to facilitate class and group discussions on important academic and social topics. Students can reflect on learning, share ideas and opinions, or ask and answer questions. You can create, monitor, and reply to discussions, and students can participate in discussions you create. In addition, you can choose whether or not to score discussions.

To start an active discussion with your class, you must first create and assign a discussion prompt. Once a discussion prompt is assigned, you can view the details and status of the active discussion, as well as edit, hide, or score the discussion.

Discussions are different from other assignments in that students do not have a Turn In option. They are automatically turned in at midnight in the student's time zone on the due date.
