If I create discussion groups, will students be able to see the posts from groups they are not members of? If not, is there any way to set it so this can occur?
Yes! When you create a discussion, you have the option to select "this is a group discussion." When you do that, you can choose which groups see which discussion. You can also create new group categories from this area, too. The image below is from the "details" section when creating a new discussion. Hope that helps!
Thank you for submitting your question. Once you assign a discussion to a group, it creates a separate discussion for each group in their group page. You can use the Assign to fields to assign the discussion to all of your course groups and then it should still appear for all students and they’ll see all replies.
Here are some guides that may be helpful to you:
How do I create a group discussion in a course?
How do I assign a graded discussion to a course discussion?
Hope this helps!
