D2L Thing of the Week: Discussion Tool
The Discussion tool is a great way to keep your students engaged, even outside of class time. You can
- set up a question for students to answer before they come to the next class;
- set up weekly one-minute reflections that students complete before they leave class; or
- have them comment, ask questions, and/or provide feedback to each other in a discussion topic.
