15 Create a discussion

Show & Tell

<10 min.

Change the tone of discussions, and give your students a chance to be creative by creating a visual discussion. Ask students to respond to a discussion prompt with a picture.

Get Started

  1. Select Discussions, then +Discussion.
  2. Enter the “Topic Title” [a] then the guidance in the large text box below [b] (e.g., “Post an image that represents your opinion on the Manhattan Project; please describe the image with Alt Text. Respond to at least two other students with at least three sentences”).
  3. Select any “Options” that fit your discussion (e.g., you probably want it to be “Graded” [c] to motivate students to complete the discussion), set a due date, and Save.
