Revise Discussions topics.

Before publishing your course, there are a couple of things to modify in the Discussions tool based on your course goals.

Tip: You can use the information in this article as you work through Step 3: Revise in the Checklist for Reusing Content from Moodle. Go back to the checklist for additional steps.

Revise Topic Titles.

Each topic in the migrated course will include the name of the forum from the source site, e.g., General Discussion. You can edit the title if desired.

Revise Topic Options.

  • Update Grading: All graded discussions imported from Moodle will have the Graded checkbox enabled in Canvas. Ensure that the grading settings are correct for use in your upcoming course.
  • Configure Group Discussions: If access to discussion topics should be restricted to specific groups of students, you will need to select This is a Group Discussion and configure the group settings.
  • Update Availability Dates: If your original topic included start and end dates, update the Available From and Until dates for the topic.

Edit a discussion topic.
