Unable to Create a Discussion as a Student

I haven't worked much with Discussions and need assistance.


I had an instructor reach out to me because her students cannot create a new topic thread within a discussion. I have checked her Discussion settings > Student Settings and she does have it enabled.



I also checked her Course settings and its enabled there too. I have logged in as a couple of her students and the +Discussion button shows.


The instructor insists that students used to be able to create a new topic within a discussion posted by the teacher. The only option I see that they have is to Reply.


I've looked in the Canvas guides and from what I can tell students can only create a new discussion on the main Discussions page.


Can anyone advise at their earliest convenience?
