If an instructor allows, students may be able to create new discussions. However, student discussions are always published immediately to the course. If you cannot create a discussion, your instructor has restricted this feature.

The images in this lesson are shown for a phone display, but unless otherwise noted, tablet displays mirror the same steps.
