Sakai 21 - Lessons: How do I allow comments to be posted on a Lessons page?


How do I allow comments to be posted on a Lessons page?

Instructors can allow students to add comments to a Lessons page. The comments can either be anonymous or have the student's name attached. The comments can be graded and either required or optional.

Note: Students have 30 minutes to edit or delete their comments. Instructors can edit or delete a student comment at any time.

Go to a desired Lessons page.

Click on the Lessons tool in the Tool Menu to display the page.

Note: The default or blank Lessons page contains text and images that explain the basic functionality of the Lessons tool.

Click Add Content, and then select Add Comments Tool.

From the Add Content drop-down menu, select Add Comments Tool.

View Comments tool on page.

An Add Comment button will appear on the page. Students would click this to add a comment. Once submitted, students' comments would display for the instructor and all students in this area on the page.

Click Edit. (Optional)

Click Edit to view or modify the comment properties.

Edit the comments tool properties as needed.

  1. To make comments anonymous, check the box next to Keep Comments Anonymous.
  2. Check the box next to Create Gradebook items for these, if you would like to grade the comments, and enter a maximum point value.

Note: Students CAN read other students' comments in this tool.

Click Update Item.

This will return the display to the Lessons page with the Add Comments button.

View of comments.

If the comments are graded, you may enter grades directly on the comment page, or click on the Grading Pane icon to enter scores there.
