Canvas Course Design

Discussions Tool

Canvas Discussions can be created as an assignment for grading purposes and seamlessly integrates with the Canvas Gradebook. The Discussion tool in Canvas include some very nice assessment options including:

  • Graded Individual Discussion
  • Graded Group Discussions
  • Peer Reviewed Discussions

The Discussion option “Users must post before seeing replies,” requires students to post their own original response to the forum before they can see what their peers have write. This is a great option to ensure diverse opinions and engaging discussion.

To learn more about Discussions, please watch the Discussion Video and explore the Discussion Tutorials listed on this page.
