Using Discussions: Course Popularity and Social Learning

by | Feb 28, 2020 | Tips & Tricks

We recently announced Discussions, the newest addition to our platform that gathers AI sentiment analysis data and encourages social learning. We’d like to show you how using Discussions can help you understand course popularity and performance, and promote learner participation.

Watch this quick tutorial video to learn how you can use Discussions in your own courses!

It’s that easy. Simply begin using Discussions to bring more value to your online courses by fostering a collaborative learning experience and by measuring the popularity and performance of your intellectual property.

Creating a Discussion

The Discussion editing screen on the DigitalChalk platform

Creating your Discussions is as simple as going to the “Manage” tab and clicking “Create Discussion.” All you have to do after that is fill out the information on the edit screen, and you’ll be ready to go!

Moderating a Discussion

Need to keep your Discussions moderated? Assign a moderator you trust, and they can approve the best, most insightful posts or reject or delete the posts that aren’t relevant to the topic.

Running Reports

Dashboard for running Discussions, Posts, Flagged Posts, and Moderators reports.

If you want to know how popular a Discussion is or how engaged your learners are, just run a report! Use this advanced reporting system to make better strategic business decisions or to keep track of learner interactions.
