Canvas - How do I create a course discussion as a student?


You may be able to create new discussions in your course.

Note: If the Add Discussionbutton does not appear, your instructor has restricted this setting in your course. However, this setting does not affect discussions in course groups.


Open Discussions

Open Discussions

In Course Navigation, click the Discussions link.

Create Discussion

Create Discussion

Create your discussion by utilizing the following options:

 

  1. Enter your topic title in the topic title field.
  2. Use the Rich Content Editor to format your content.
  3. Attach a file to your discussion. (Note: If the attachment option does not appear, your instructor has restricted this setting. Depending on your browser you may also see "Browse" instead of "Choose File".)  
  4. Create a threaded reply by clicking the Allow threaded replies checkbox.
  5. Require users to post to the discussion before viewing other replies by clicking the Users must post before seeing replies checkbox.
  6. Allow users to like discussion posts by clicking the Allow liking checkbox.
  7. Set specific dates the discussion can be viewed. Select the date you want the discussion to become available in the Available From field and the date the discussion should be hidden in the Until field. If you do not enter any dates, the discussion will be visible during the entire duration of the course.
  8. Use the Content Selector to add additional content to your discussion post. (Note: If the Files tab does not appear in the Content Selector, your instructor has restricted this setting.)
