Hi, last semester, students were able to use the discussion board to attach a file concept map and then look at other uploaded concept maps to make comments. This semester the link it missing. Is this a glitch or on purpose? Will it return?
Hello firstname.lastname@example.org Welcome to the Canvas Community. Thank you for posting your question. The animation that email@example.com has provided is also covered in this Guide: How do I allow students to attach files to a course discussion?. In addition to Dave's response, you can also toggle file attachments for discussion topics on/off via your course "Settings" screen. Please check out How do I set details for a course?, and scroll to the "View More Options" section near the bottom of this Guide. You'll see a check-box for "Let students attach files to discussions". You'd need to turn this on for every course that you wanted students to have this ability.
I hope this helps, Barbara.
