How do I allow students to edit and delete their own Discussion posts?
Canvas recently introduced a new page design called the New Canvas User Interface (UI). Depending on your Canvas view, your page design may vary from the images shown in this lesson. However, the functionality and location of the components remain the same.
You can allow students to edit and delete their own Discussion posts by changing the course settings. Settings are available in the Discussions Page or the Course Settings Page.
Note: When enabled, this setting also applies to group discussions.
Discussions Page Settings
In Course Navigation, click the Discussions link.
Edit Discussion Settings
You can also change the Discussions permissions in the Course Settings.
