To adjust settings for a threaded discussion:

  1. Navigate to the Threaded Discussion tool in the Lessons pages of your Isidore site.
  2. Click on Settings.
  3. Adjust the available settings:
    • Discussion title override - display a custom title for the discussion (instead of "Threaded Discussion")

Grading should be enabled when the Threaded Discussion learning app is installed, as it can't be enabled after the fact. Read more on the Grade a Threaded Discussion page

    • Give a 100% grade for a student making a post or a comment - gives students a 100% grade if they make a thread or comment
    • Put comment box before comments in thread display - puts an empty comment box on the top of the threads page (instead of the bottom)
    • Allowed depth of nested comments - adjusts how many levels of nested replies there can be (default is 2)
    • Due date - set a due date for threads and replies
    • Time zone - set your timezone
    • Penalty time period - penalty deduction is calculated by each time period that passes (in seconds, specified by the instructor)
    • Penalty deduction - percentage of points deducted per penalty time period (specified by the instructor)
  1. Click on Save changes.
