How do I allow comments to be posted on a Lessons page?
Instructors can allow students to add comments to a Lessons page. The comments can either be anonymous or have the student’s name attached. The comments can be graded and either required or optional.
Note: Students have 30 minuets to edit or delete their comments. Instructors can edit or delete a student comment at any time.
Click on the Lessons Page Title (e.g. Unit 7) in the Tool Menu to display the page.
Note: The default or blank Lessons page contains text and images that explain the basic functionality of the Lessons tool.
From the Add Content drop-down menu, select Add Comments Tool.
Click Edit to view or modify the comment properties.
- To make comments anonymous, check the box nest to Keep Comments Anonymous.
- Check the box next to Create Gradebook Entries, if you would like to grade the comments, and enter a maximum point value.
- If you would like to restrict this item based on a prerequisite, check the box for Don't release item until all prerequisites are completed.
- If students are required to add comments before moving on to a different Lessons item, check the box next to Require This Item.
Note: Students CAN read other students' comments in this tool.
