In a discussion board or resource in which there
has been discussion, display settings will determine:
(a) which posts are displayed, and
(b) which are marked as 'NEW'.
The default is for all posts to be displayed, and for new posts
to remain marked as 'NEW' until you explicitly mark them as read.
You can set a personal preference that will apply to your display
of all discussions in all courses.
If you change the display settings in an individual board or
resource, by using the Change link beneath
the postings, those settings will override the default or a
global preference you set using your Set user preferences screen. To
set/change your global discussion display preferences:
- Either select Preferences from the dropdown list displayed
when you mouseover your name at the top left of the screen or
click Main Menu on the Inline Menu and
then select Set user preferences
in the My Space group
- At the Set User Preferences screen, select
- Check one or both 'Change' checkboxes in the Action column.
- Click Save.
