Not all instructors are comfortable with students having the ability to message each other outside of Teacher created groups. Creating a toggle to prevent students from being visible to each other in the Inbox would help this.
Shane, Control Conversations at a Course Level is currently open for voting. Please add your support and comments to that idea. We've marked this one for archival to keep vote totals unified in one spot.
Thanks for this.
The post you have directed me to does not have anything explicitly about removing the ability to see the others in that course. It is implied in the post, and I hope you folks are reading it the same way I am.
Shane , I took your idea as being specific to the Canvas Inbox, and that is the focus of the idea to which I linked. Students' ability to see others anywhere in the course is another matter, would need to be the subject of a different request, and would have to be sharply focused (is the request for students not to have the ability to see one another in a discussion, for example)?
I was referring specifically to the inbox, but I like your idea for anonymous discussion boards. You should submit that idea.
Shane, Instructure employees don't submit ideas—this forum is a place where our Community members can share their suggestions—but the great news here is that the idea is already open! Check out Anonymous Discussion Forums
