TECH TUESDAYS: DID YOU KNOW...?
You can create Group Discussions in D2L? Group Discussions allow you to break a large class into smaller discussion groups to make the discussion forum more manageable for both the instructor and the student, creating a more collaborative and rich discussion. To set up Group Discussions, you must first set up Groups. Once your Groups have been set up, D2L can automatically create a group-restricted topic for each of your discussion forums. The Group Discussions article outlines the process of creating Group Discussions.
Need more information about working with D2L? Visit the all new D2L Solutions Center for lots of how-to videos and documents!
