Attaching a File in a Discussion

Hey Everyone!


I'm wondering if anyone else is "seeing" what I'm seeing or in this case not-seeing.


I'm developing a course and I want a platform for student to "present" their work and discuss it. I used the discussion format to achieve this. I thought..yes...this is going to be great! Then, a curve ball...the students view of a discussion board doesn't include an "attach" icon on the lower left. It's only on my teacher view. I can ask them to record within a discussion- love that- but I had them create a poster and most of them used Word, then they couldn't "attach" the file. The embed image icon doesn't allow for this function- since it pulls from Canvas, Flicker, etc.


Do students need to upload to Canvas, THEN use the embed image icon to "attach" a file? But I'm not sure if this will work with a document.

Thanks! I appreciate the additional brain power!
