Monitoring Course Q&A Discussions

NOTE: Some institutions disable the Q&A functionality; if you do not see the Questions button or Q&A tab described below, check with your school's help desk to see if this is the case with your institution.

Instructors can elicit and monitor course discussions through the Q&A tab.

The Q&A tab lets instructors post questions or discussion points, view and respond to student questions, and endorse (like) student-posted questions and responses.

As an instructor, you also have the ability to delete any questions or responses that are inappropriate. You cannot edit other users' entries.

To monitor Q&A discussions

  1. On the DASHBOARD, find the course containing the class you want and click ALL CLASSES.
    The class list page appears.
  2. Click the Q&A tab.
