Instructors can display discussion forums and topics in one of two styles: Grid View or Reading View (default style). Each style presents posts and replies in a distinctly different fashion without affecting the content.

NOTE: Accessing a discussion through Content will display in Reading View only. If you wish to use Grid View, you must access the discussion through the Assessments or Communication menu.
