How do I use graded discussions?


Graded discussions are a great way to engage students in class participation. The discussions feature allows for threaded discussions, where members of the course can reply to comments within a discussion response. Discussions also allow members to attach files, links, and audio/video (Enterprise feature). These tools facilitate great conversations by enabling students to share content with one another.
