Completing Online Discussion Assignments


To post a response for the Online Discussion assignment, create a new post. More detailed instructions here. Be sure to follow the next three steps:

Categorize your post accordingly. For example, if you are posting on Week 3, make sure that the category boxes, “Online Discussion” and “Week 3” are checked.

Tag your posts with relevant keywords. For example, the author’s name, topic of discussion and so on. This will help us visualize the main ideas in our class over the course of the semester.

Make your post Private. On the left panel, check “Private” under the Visibility setting. This will ensure that your posts are visible to the class only.



Use the “Comment” function that follows each post to comment on a response.
