The current format takes a summary post by the instructor and places it in time submitted sequence after the previous posts. Thus it is it is buried and students in the class will need to search for this. While I respond to many individual posts, I often like to submit a summary post offering comments to the entire class. Suggest that instructors have the option of creating a post at the very top of the threaded discussions. This will enable students to easily locate the instructor's summary response (at least that is the way I would use it). Other instructors may have alternate uses such as general comments to the class about the direction of the discussion, etc.
