As an author in Build, you can create a page discussion inside a unit in your course for learners to participate in.
The learners in the course are posed a question or discussion topic which they can answer in a page comment and reply discussion environment. The page discussion is located at the bottom of the page, when enabled. Learners post their reply to the discussion topic. The answers are visible to all learners in the course. Peer votes can be cast on a learner's answer.
To add a page discussion, go to the unit where you want to enable or edit the discussion.
If you are in the main organise content area, find the relevant unit from the content tab and click the Green + button. Select Preview/Edit from the drop down list.
Once you are on the unit page, look for the unit title. Next to the unit title is a cog.
Clicking this cog brings up an editable page settings dialogue box. Click on the Page discussion tab to create or edit a discussion title and introduction.
Note: 'Enable in page discussion' must be ticked in order for learners to view and participate in the page discussion.
