  • This allows a user to view Q and A forum posts without first posting

(By default a Q and A forum requires students to post once before viewing other students' postings. After the initial posting, students can view and respond to others' postings. This feature allows equal initial posting opportunity among all students, thus encouraging original and independent thinking.)

It generally takes students 10 seconds to work out that if they post an answer they can see the other replies and that if they delete their initial reply they are reverted to the "first post status". Options:

  • Monitor the forum activity for deletions
  • Override the capability of students to be able to delete their own posts ;-)
