Override Role in Q & A forum

Override Role in Q & A forum

We are using Moodle 2.3.3 in a pilot this spring, before we transition our campus from 1.9.

For Q&A forums, our faculty frequently prefer to use the override permissions to prevent students from making new posts and force them to reply to a post made by the instructor.  In Moodle 2.3, where is the ability to override a role for a specific activity?

In this case, one of our faculty is using a course originally created in 1.9, and I think the override was created in that instance, but I cannot locate the forum overrides in Moodle 2.  Is there an admin setting that must be toggled first?

Thanks for any leads,

Mary Beth

Hi Mary Beth,

Go to the forum page, and you will see a "permissions" link in the settings block.  That is where overrides are done.  That said, there are some differences in how Q and A behaves in Moodle 2.  Students cannot post questions by default.  They can only reply.  Also, student must wait for the editing period to expire before seeing other student replies.
