Visibility of instructor replies to discussions

Visibility of instructor replies to discussions

Currently discussions can be set up to prevent students  from seeing any reply posts until after they add their own post.  Instructors can post (even before students get to the discussion) their own reply, but in this case students will not see the instructor's reply until after they have posted.

I suggest adding a way, for instructors only, to be able to mark their own reply to be visible right away, even if all others replies are hidden pending the student's first reply.

This would enable example posts and tips from instructors to be seen before the student posts, separately from the main instructions, but as the only initial visible response(s).

Thanks for sharing this idea. It would seem to pair well with  Pin Discussion Posts from Instructor, so please add your comment and rating to that as well if you haven't already.

@Stefanie thanks!  I was sure there would already be one for that 🙂
