Assigning modules by section

Jump to solution

Is it possible to assign modules by section?  The only way I can have discussions per section is to assign different discussions to each section.  I cannot just put all class periods in the "Assign to" for one discussion or ALL students are thrown together.  This creates a problem when setting up a module because the student only needs to complete the discussion for his/her class, not all the discussions, but I need to post all the discussions in the module for all kids to access them through Modules.  Is there any way to resolve this?

Hi Wendy:

First, let me make sure I am understanding you correctly - you are teaching all periods from one Canvas classroom. Is that correct?

If so, then is each period in it's own section? You can tell by going to the People Index page, and looking down the Section column. If so, then create a discussion for each section in your Modules, then assign each discussion only to the appropriate section. Students in other sections will see it grayed out in the module, and will be unable to access it. How do I assign a graded discussion to a course section?

Let me know if that works, or if you have further questions.

That helps!  I have 3 follow-up questions.  I do have my periods arranged into sections.  So...

First, if I have created totally different discussion boards/assigments for each section, I can put them all in the same module, but the kids will only be able to click on theirs.  Is that correct?  Then, will it allow them to earn a badge for completing that module?

Second, if I have put links on my home page to the discussion assignments for different class periods (link for 1st period, link for 2nd period...), would they be able to submit info to a discussion that is not for their class if they accidentally click the wrong link, or would they be blocked?  

Third, if I click "add" and put a new section in the same assignment/discussion, will the students be limited to only discuss with their period or will all sections listed under the one assignment be in one huge discussion?  (This was a problem last year, and I'm hoping maybe that got resolved.)
