Course Copy Starter Discussion Posts

Course Copy Starter Discussion Posts

0 Kudos

In the Blackboard LMS, one useful feature was copying starter discussion posts to new courses. I find this helpful since students often look at their peers' discussion posts before posting their own. However, as many of us know, whoever posts first in large respect dictates the direction and quality of the remaining student posts. I have had times where the first person rushed the assignment and did not follow the directions and then nearly every remaining student followed what that first person did. This is why I think it would be helpful to give Canvas the option of copying starter posts from the discussions into the new course so that I don't have to manually add new discussion posts for each of my classes.

Thanks for sharing this idea! As it moves forward for broader discussion, you might be interested in adding your comments to a related idea:  Pin Discussion Posts from Instructor.

Also, Canvas is currently undertaking a redesign of the discussions interface, and the product manager leading the project is inviting community feedback at  Discussions Redesign; we hope you'll join in. 🙂
