Folio: Discussions

Badge Track: Folio

The Discussion tool provides an area or areas for asynchronous communication that can be used to create peer interaction and conversations. Forums, i.e. categories are created as a way of organizing the Topics, which are essentially the question prompts in Folio. Students can post and reply to messages in the Discussion Topics.

Learning Objectives: Create Discussion Forums and Topics, set Discussion properties, review the “optional” use of the “Discussion instructions document, reply, and edit messages, add notifications, and flag messages, attach files to Discussion messages, and view and grade student work.
