What is the best way to set up unfolding case studies in the discussion board?

For the student's off campusweeks to stimulate active participation and interactivity. I want to create unfolding case studies where parts of the case are released in a staggered format to promote student engagement throughout the discussion week instead of when their initial response is due. Any suggestions for the best way to create unfolding  case studies in the discussion forum?

 @srobinson4 , that’s a pretty cool idea! Unfortunately there’s no way to set this up automatically in Canvas using a discussion. What I would do is manually add the extra information each day. I would also make the text a different color (as well as bold and larger size text) so that way it would stand out and students would be able to easily see it.

Kona,

I thank you for the response. I want to clarify when you say to add the information are you saying to add a new discussion thread or adding more information to the discussion prompt in the dialogue box which provides the students the discussion prompt information (bold in contrasting colors)?

Much appreciated, Sabrina
