Social features are enabled by default, but as a manager you can choose to make an activation free from social features and discussion.
Disabling social features means that learners have a learning experience that is independent of discussion with other learners.
The following features are disabled:
talk channels - including announcements from facilitators
Disabling social features for an existing activation hides all existing discussions.
Learners can still save study notes, complete activities, and facilitators can give feedback on activities and mark assessments.
To disable social features
In Create on the Details tab for an activation
Use the toggle for Social Features to enable or disable
Click Update or Activate
