Where do I post required discussion for my class assignment?

Jump to solution

I cannot figure out where I am supposed to post my entry for COM170AX3 Discussions Week 1 Discussion. I went to the help page Q & A and it looks like a whole new web page for LMS Community of over 700,000 users.  I want to post to my class.  On the modules page pertaining to this assignment I see where I can "reply" but is that where I put original post?

thanks

Hello there, tpeters2001@baypath.edu...

The Canvas Community website (where you saw the home page with over 700,000 members) is not your class that you are taking at your school.  This site is a place where people from all over the world come to ask questions, suggest and vote on Feature Ideas, collaborate with others, join special interest groups, review "how to" Guides, and a whole lot more...all about Canvas.  You won't find any course curriculum specifically about the course you are taking on this website.

Even though I do not know exactly what your instructor is requiring of you, I can give you some basic information.  What you'll want to do is make sure you are logged in to Canvas and in the course you are taking.  Then, follow the information in this short tutorial video: .  Then, later on, if you want to take a deeper dive into the inner workings of discussion topics in your course, there are a bunch of other written Guides available for you.

I hope this information will be of help to you, Tina.  Sing out if you have any other questions.  Stay safe...be well.

Thank you very much, this is very helpful. I think the problem is there is

no "discussions" option in the list of choices along the left. The video

link you sent is super! I really appreciate you taking the time to reply.

When I saw 700,000 plus community I knew I was in the wrong place.

kind regards

Hi there, tpeters2001@baypath.edu...

In your Canvas course, if you do not see the "Discussions" course navigation menu item, it could be that your instructor has chose to hide that menu from you and your students.  Many instructors choose to organize their course content via the "Modules" page of your course (hopefully that course navigation button isn't hidden from your view, either).  It's quite possible that you'll find the discussion topic listed on the "Modules" page of your course.  But, if you still cannot find it, I would highly recommend that you reach out to your instructor following the steps outlined in this Guide: How do I get help with Canvas as a student?.

Hoping that this extra bit of information will be helpful to you, Tina.  Good luck!!!
