For existing Michigan Virtual discussions or if you create a new discussion, you will want to ensure that only students assigned to a section will see their classmates' posts.
- First, tap Discussions in the top navbar.
- Then tap on the drop-down arrow next to the desired topic and select Edit Topic.
- Next, choose Group or section topic, everyone can access this topic but students only see threads from their own group or section from the Topic Type.
Tip: If you do not see Topic Type, you must first create sections for this course. You may get a Confirmation pop up asking if you are sure you want to make this change. Select “Yes” if you do want your discussions to be specific to each section.
- At this point, tap the Save and Close button at the bottom of the page.
Additionally, there could come a time when a teacher wishes to create a discussion topic that is specific to one or a couple of the sections, but not all sections. Brightspace does allow a discussion board topic to be restricted by section(s).
