How do I create a Threaded Discussion?
Threaded Discussions lend themselves to the refining of complex ideas. Students can quickly navigate responses and different lines of inquiry using the threaded discussion's hierarchical structure. For example, Threaded Discussions can be long-standing spaces for thoughts that persist throughout an entire course.
