Class discussion is a chat room built into every lesson that allows all students and teachers in a subject to talk about the lesson's content.
It is disabled by default and can only be switched on by the teacher.
Class discussion can allow students to collaborate outside of class and quietly discuss topics during class. Each lesson has its own class discussion. When discussion is enabled, all students in the subject can participate as long as the lesson is released to their class.
- Students can upload images and videos to share.
- Teachers can highlight insightful comments and hide inappropriate or off-topic comments.

Students and teachers can share images, GIFs, and more by using the Attach button, marked with a paperclip. Enlarge and play uploaded content by clicking on it.
Teachers can direct the class discussion through Moderation. Highlight useful contributions or delete inappropriate comments. Deleted comments are greyed out in teacher view and hidden completely from students.
