Unless banned by an instructor, all resources in the course can host discussion, which means students may post comments that will appear to all viewers.
For all course members a icon appears on the Course Contents screen next to any resource with new discussion postings. In addition, course personnel will see new discussion on their What's New? screens within the box headlined Unread course discussion posts.
Instructors may allow course participants to post anonymously or not, and course personnel can still see who posted the anonymous messages. Änonymous" only prevents students from knowing who posted. (Sometimes instructors or TAs post anonymously to discreetly help the students.) Course personnel may hide or delete inappropriate messages.
To participate in discussion on a resource, click Post Discussion at the bottom of a resource. If you want to reply back to a particular post, then click the appropriate Reply link.
To control how discussions are displayed, see "Change the way Discussion Posts are Displayed" section ().
