Discussions: Post to All Groups at Once (Instructors only)
Instructors who utilize Discussions for Groups or Sections can now post a discussion thread to all the associated groups/sections from a group discussion topic. If an instructor does not have access to all groups they have the option to post a thread to All groups/sections assigned to me.
From within the discussion topic:
- The instructor can select Start New Thread.
- Select “Post Thread To”
- For a course with Groups: Select either All Groups or each individual group from the dropdown list. The examples below show a discussion with traditional groups and a second example shows individual user groups. Select the images to view larger.
This example shows the options available if a course has traditional groups setup (group 1, 2, 3 and so on).
This example shows a course setup with individual user groups, for a journal-type usage.
- For a course with Sections: Select either All Sections Assigned to Me or the individual sections.
- Compose your post by adding a subject and post body text.
- Click Post.
