How do I reply to a discussion in Discussions Redesign as an instructor?

You can reply to any discussion or discussion reply in the Discussions Redesign interface.

If the steps in this lesson do not match what is displayed in your course, learn how to reply to a discussion in the classic Discussions interface.

Note: If the anonymous discussion option is enabled for the discussion, student names and profile pictures do not display. However, as an instructor, your name and profile picture is visible to all course members.
