Create New Discussions from Content Page

Previously when adding a discussion to a lesson you could only pick from existing discussions that had been created in the Community tab of the course. With this feature update a facilitator can now create a new discussion post from within the content creation flow, rather than clicking back and forth between different pages to create and place a post in a lesson.

To create a new discussion post and add it to your lesson follow these steps.

  1. While in Edit Mode for your course select +Add Content and choose the Discussion content type.

    • Make sure to choose the Channel you want the post created in before selecting Start a New Discussion.
