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.
- On a Desktop or Laptop: From the Assessments or Communication menu, select Discussions.
On a Mobile Device: From the Mobile Menu, select Assessments or Communication, then select Discussions.
- Select Settings.
- Under the Default View section, select the Radio Button next to Grid View or Reading View.
- Grid Style – Presents a list of posts and replies in the topic that can be selected and individually displayed in the pane below.
- Reading Style – Presents each post and reply as a stream of messages, allowing for continuous reading of posts.
- Select Save.
