One of the benefits of a Canvas course site is that discussion can continue outside of lecture hours. Canvas discussion forums allow students to participate and interact outside the classroom. Instructors have used discussion forums in a number of ways.

  1. To share news articles related to course concepts
  2. To allow students to pose questions about specific assignments
  3. As a graded assignment contributing to students’ participation marks

Instructors can review comments on student-by-student basis and see a summary of discussion forum participation.
