Understanding Your Course Discussion Settings
Chat settings are unique to each course and can be updated at any time by instructors and administrators associated with the course.
Accessing the Course Discussion Settings
1. From the home screen, select the Course you are working with.
2. Click on Discussion in the left sidebar navigation.
3. Click on the Settings Icon (Gear Icon) in the top right corner of the page. This will show two options.
This toggle lets you enable or disable the entire chat. By default, the course discussion is enabled. To disable the chat so students cannot access it, toggle the setting to 'Off'.
a. Disable During Assessment
This toggle is turned on by default, which will automatically disable the course discussion during any active assessment. To allow students to access chat during assessments, toggle the setting to 'Off’.
4. After choosing your settings, click on 'X' in the top right corner to close the pop-up.
