Ultra Course Discussions

Key information

Discussions allow interaction within a course or organisation. Discussions facilitate asynchronous group discussion and class work, and can be used to encourage students to think critically and share their thoughts before or beyond live teaching.

 See our page on Learning Activities – Discussion Forums for more pedagogical advice.

How it works?

You can have multiple Discussions on your course they are essentially web pages displaying messages between contributors (students and instructors) about a specific topic, sometimes including links, images and other file attachments. Users interact by posting questions, answers, and other comments related to the given topic/subject. Each post may have several replies.
