The guide said that if discussions was hidden from my menu i could get to it from elsewhere in canvas. However, it did not elaborate on how to do that. How do I view discussions when it has been assigned but is not a menu option?
If your institution has hidden the discussion menu you should be able to find your discussions as part of the modules within your course. When you are in the modules you can tell somethings a discussion by looking for the icon below next to the title.
