Question and Answer forums work differently than other forums.  In these forums, the teacher makes the initial post and students reply to that post.   There is a list of any Question and Answer forums in your course on the Setting Up Your Course page in the Instructor Resources book.

  • Students cannot participate until the teacher makes the first post.
  • Students cannot see other students' replies to the forum until after they have submitted their own post and waited 5 minutes.

To make the first post in a Question and Answer forum:

  1. Click on Add a new discussion.
  2. For the subject of your post, write Post Your Reply Here!
  3. In the body of your post, you may want to copy and paste the forum prompt.
  4. Click Submit.
