Notes on Discussions

  • Discussions can be scored or unscored. Scored Discussions are a kind of Assignment.
  • Discussions can include text formatted using the same WYSIWYG editor used in Pages.
  • You can embed media in Discussions, or attach files to a posting.
  • Discussion replies are called "side comments". Look for the green reply arrows, or the "Make a side comment" link.

Known Issues

  • Teachers can edit posts, but not "side comments".
