Perhaps you are interested in using D2L discussions in the coming year, or perhaps you consider yourself a power user. Here are 5 things you need to know about the discussions area in D2L.

Discussions can be created in 2 ways: through the discussions tab and in the content area.



Discussions have 3 layers:

  1. Forums, which act like categories or folders.
  2. Topics: which is where the actual discussion takes place.
  3. Threads, which include threads and replies.

Permissions can be placed on forums and topics, but generally you only want to set topic permissions.

Forums and topics have options: For you to allow anonymous posts and to allow a moderator to approve a post before it is published.

You can add quick links to other items in D2L.
