Discussion Forum Updates for the First Term

September 16, 2014 | 0 Minute Read

Just in time for the first academic term, we've added a bunch of new features to the discussion forum. These are:

  • You can now search for posts by date range.
  • There is now a "My Own Posts" view in the "My Discussion Forum" section of the discussion forum. This page shows all the posts you have made in the discussion forum.
  • Faculty and TAs now have a report which shows them if a student did or did not respond to a specific category or topic in the discussion forum.
  • If there are posts in a discussion forum category that still need to be graded, a red exclamation point is displayed next to the Gradebook icon for that category on the main discussion forum page.

Additionally, the layout of the discussion forum has been completely redone on mobile devices. It's now much easier to read and particpate in the discussion forum while on your phone!
