In large classes, a Teaching Assistant can help moderate the Q&A submissions during class so the common questions can be answered efficiently.
To view and respond to student questions
- On the DASHBOARD, find the course containing the class you want and click ALL CLASSES.
The class list page appears.
- Click the Q&A tab.
- Review the questions and click on the one you want to respond to.
The question and any existing responses appear in the right pane of the page.
- Click Respond to this question.
A response panel appears below the question in the right pane.
- Enter your response in the text field provided.
- Optionally, click the paperclip to attach a file to your response.
- Enable the Post anonymously slider to post your response without using your name (course instructors can always see who posted a question or response).
- Click POST. Alternately, if you change your mind about responding, click the X located in the top right of the response panel to close without posting a response.
Editing posted responses
You can edit any responses you have posted to a class. You can only edit your own posts.
