Discussions with Groups

How do I create Discussions that are tied to groups?

  1. Click Discussions under the Communication dropdown menu.
  2. Click the New button.
  3. Click New Topic.
  4. Click the Forum heading to select which forum this topic will go under, or if a new forum needs to be created for this discussion topic, click the New Forum link beside it.
  5. Enter a title for the discussion in the Title text field.
  6. Enter a description/prompt for the discussion in the Description text field.
  7. Click the Restrictions tab at the top of the page.
  8. Under the Topic Type heading, select the circle next to "Group or section topic."
  9. Select the Group or Sections Category for the topic.
  10. Enter a Title and Instructions.
  11. Click the Save and Close button.

 

Now students in each group will only see posts from their group members. Teachers will see all posts from all groups.
