Fuel student engagement with scaffolded discussions
Create discussion activities to foster a sense of community & belonging between your students
How it works
The discussion activity gives your students the option to post and reply to topics. Using a discussion activity is a great way to let your students engage with each other and strengthen the sense of community in your course.
Motivate learners to participate
Nudge students to engage in discussions by giving them a checkmark for participation. You can specify rules for how many interactions students need to make in order to complete the activity.
Create a context for discussions
In order to create meaningful discussions in a learning environment, it’s important to scaffold them and give them context. Combine discussions with other activities and combine them in your learning flows.
Create a safe environment for discussions to take place
To create a comfortable space for students to interact with each other, smaller groups create a safer environment in a vulnerable learning process. With the discussion activity, you can separate students into smaller discussion groups.
Never miss an insightful discussion
We make sure to notify both instructors and students about relevant development in your discussion activities. Never miss an insightful discussion again!
Set up prerequisites for students, so they can only participate in discussions after having completed certain tasks.
