Can you create two deadlines in a discussion post?
CATHERINE, greetings! There is no direct way to add two due dates for a discussion in the discussion settings. What I've seen some people do is either set the due date as either the initial-post due date OR the follow-up due date and then add an "event" in the Calendar for the second due date reminder.
After trying this a few different ways, what seems to work best for me and my students is to set the discussion due date as the initial post due date (Ex: Thursday). Then in the calendar, I add an event that is the for the follow-up due date (Ex: Sunday). In addition, in the syllabus, discussion directions, etc I explain that there are two due dates and go into more detail on what is required for each due date. The first few weeks I also send out a reminder email to students about the two due dates and overall this seems to work and students catch on quickly and don't have any problems.
Hope this helps! Kona
