Community forum on Canvas

Community Novice

I'm teaching statistics at a university and really miss a good discussion/community forum integrated on Canvas. It's hard to find relevant stuff in old posts and it feels more like a Q&A forum. Do anyone know ways to integrate other forums into Canvas that might be more like the community forums such as Stackoverflow or Stackexchange?

If it can have code/regex in it that would be a awesome, but really what I miss is a good way for students to ask questions, find old answers, and help out and answer themselves.

Uni. regulations make it challenging to use external pages such as the ones mentioned or Google Groups etc.

Thank you 🙂
