New Discussion Board Feature

<p> Discussion boards allow users to carry on discussions online, at any time. We have launched two types of discussion boards that are automatically available in your account: </p> <br /> <h4>Course Discussions</h4> <p> The course discussions allow students to discuss different topics related to the course. Only students who are enrolled in the course can participate in this type of discussion board. Course discussions can be disabled at two different levels: </p> <ol> <li> Globally disabled – Under the <strong>settings</strong> -> <strong>features</strong> section of your account there is an option to disable discussions on all courses. </li> <li> Per-Course – Under the <strong>course settings</strong> for a course there is an option to disable the discussion for an individual course. </li> </ol> <br /> <h4> Global Discussions </h4> <p> The global discussion boards allow users to discussion topics which you, as an Administrator, determine. As an Administrator, you can set up as many discussion boards as you like, as a student you can view the discussion boards, create topics in the board, or reply to topics created by other users. Global discussion boards can be disabled under the settings -> features page of your account. </p> <br /> <h4>Administration of discussions</h4> <p> As an Administrator, you have full control over the discussions or replies created by your users. You can quickly and easily hide or delete topics and replies created by users. You can mark a discussion topic as <strong>pinned</strong> to have it remain at the top of the discussion list. </p>
