Class discussion

Class discussion is a chat room built into every Lesson that allows all students and teachers in a Subject to talk about lesson content.

Class discussion can allow students to collaborate outside of Class and quietly discuss topics during Class. Each Lesson has its own class discussion, which is disabled by default and can only be enabled by the teacher. When discussion is enabled, all students in the Subject can participate as long as the Lesson is released to their Class.

  • Students can post comments, or upload images and videos to share;
  • Teachers can highlight insightful comments and hide inappropriate or off-topic comments.


Enable Class discussion


From the Lessons page, find the Lesson to be discussed and click into it. Click the Class discussion tab on the right hand side to expand then click the Open the discussion now button to enable Class discussion for all teachers and students. You can close the class discussion at any time by clicking the discussion off button. 


Upload content


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.
