Discussion topics can be placed into any one of three sections on the Discussion board, Pinned Discussions, Discussions, and Closed for Comments. By default, upon creation, discussions are added to the “Discussions” section.
- Pinned Discussions– appear at the top of the page and can be arranged in any order according to your preference. Students will see discussion topics in this section based on instructor choice of order. Instructors pin discussions to draw attention to specific and/or current topics.
- Discussions- in this section are ordered by most recent activity and their order of appearance will change dynamically throughout the course.
Closed for Comments– Discussions in this section are limited to view only access for students. Once discussions are completed, they can be moved to this section to prevent further activity, yet, keeping the contents of the discussions available to students.
