Does anyone know how to prevent students from commenting in Speedgrader?
Michael Pearce, as far as I know, it is not possible to disallow comments in Speedgrader. You can, however, do a few things to keep up with the comments. First, you can view them all in the inbox:
If you prefer, you can have Speedgrader comments forwarded to your email account in your notification preferences: How do I set my Canvas notification preferences as an instructor?
Does that help?
Thanks Dallas. I'll look into that. It's just that with comments permanently 'on', if students do comment on my comment I feel bad about not responding to them all because I don't have time!
Michael, in a situation like this it might be good to let the students know that. So send an email or tell them in class the best way for them to contact you with information about their assignment, etc. I’d still recommend getting Assignment comments forwarded to your email immediately, but letting the students know what works best for you might alleviate the situation.
