Adjust Threaded Discussion SettingsΒΆ

To adjust settings for a threaded discussion:

  1. Navigate to the Threaded Discussion tool in the Lessons pages of your Isidore site.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Adjust the available settings:

    • Discussion title override - display a custom title for the discussion (instead of "Threaded Discussion")
    • Give a 100% grade for a student making a post or a comment - gives students a 100% grade if they make a thread or comment. NOTE: Grading should be enabled when the Threaded Discussion learning app is installed, as it can't be enabled after the fact. Currently, students will only receive points when they reply to a thread, not for creating a new thread. Read more on the Grade a Threaded Discussion page.
    • Put comment box before comments in thread display - puts an empty comment box on the top of the threads page (instead of the bottom)
    • Allowed depth of nested comments - adjusts how many levels of nested replies there can be (default is 2)
    • Due date - set a due date for threads and replies
    • Time zone - set your timezone
    • Penalty time period - penalty deduction is calculated by each time period that passes (in seconds, specified by the instructor)
    • Penalty deduction - percentage of points deducted per penalty time period (specified by the instructor)
  4. Click on Save changes.
