Allow Option to Make Posts from Completed Courses Private


I suggest that students be allowed to make their Discussion Board posts from completed classes private, so that only the professor, Instructable, and the student can access these posts (if the student so chooses).

There is already a degree of compromise to a student's privacy by being required to post their opinions to a public internet forum. It is something we have had to accept given the transition to online learning as a consequence of the pandemic. If students are not allowed to deleted their posts from completed courses, then they should at least be allowed to make them private.
