How do I add discussions or topics to a Lessons page?

Instructors may add links to site activities (i.e., Assignments, Discussions, Test & Quizzes) on Lessons pages.

Note: These links will automatically update to maintain links to published activities if you copy your course content to a new site, as long as you do not change the name of the activity. However, you will need to publish your activities in the new site for the links to become active.

Go to Lessons.

If you titled your page something other than Lessons, select the title of the page as it appears in your Tool Menu.

Select a forum or topic from the list of Existing Forums and Topics.

Note: You can also select the Create new discussion or topic using Discussions link to create a new topic in the Discussions tool. See How do I add a new topic? for more information.

Click Use Selected Item.

Click Edit. (Optional)

Add a description for the topic, and then click Update Item.

View updated item.

Updating returns the display to the Lessons page with a link to the topic and a description.
