How can I require students to post to a Discussion before they see replies?
Start a Discussion
Click the Add Discussion button.
Create a Discussion
Create your discussion by utilizing the following options:
- Enter your topic title in the topic title field.
- Use the Rich Content Editor to format your content.
- Require users to post to the discussion before viewing other replies by clicking the Users must post before seeing replies button.
Student View Discussion
Students will see a 'Replies are only visible to those who have posted at least one reply' message when they view the Discussion topic.
Note: Sometimes students will work around this requirement by deleting their posts. You can change your course settings to keep students from deleting their posts.
