Can a student respond to a discussion question, save it and post it at a later time?

Jump to solution

I am giving students a daily reflection question and would like to have them only post once for the week.  Is there a way for them to answer and save it for future posting?

Hello  @cindy_laird ...

To my knowledge, no.  Once a student has posted his/her comment to a given discussion topic, it is viewable to everyone in the course.

The exception to this is if you had set your discussion topic in such a way that students cannot see other student postings until a student posts (so to prevent posting the same thoughts/ideas).  You can learn more about that here: https://community.canvaslms.com/docs/DOC-13010-415250008 

I know this may not be the answer you were looking for, but I hope that it helps to answer your question, Cindy.
