Create a Threaded Discussion

How do I set it up so Discussion Replies are Threaded?

Discussions do not automatically thread replies unless you select that option:

  1. In your Canvas course, click on the Discussions link to open Discussions.
  2. Click on the blue Start a discussion button on the top right of the page.
  3. You now have several options. You can change the Topic Title, and write in the question(s) or a prompt for the Discussion. You can also select other options, including: attach a file, Allow threaded replies, delay the posting of the message, make the replies invisible until after the students post their own thoughts, enable a Podcast Feed for the Topic, and/or using the discussion for grading. Click the box to the left of Allow threaded replies to select it.
  4. To publish your Discussion, simply click on the blue Save button at the bottom of the page..
