Instructors can choose to enable the Discussion Redesign option in their course settings. Discussions Redesign is currently a beta feature and available as a Feature Preview.

The Discussions Redesign provides an enhanced experience for course discussions for all discussions and all users in your course. Some discussion settings and features in the classic Discussions interface may not function or be available in Discussions Redesign.

For additional guidance on using discussion tools in Canvas, please see Using Online Tools for Discussion from CTL.


Canvas Discussions facilitate communication, collaboration, and file-sharing online.
