I want students to start a discussion for their projects and than I will stop all additional discussions for that level. Students will be able to reply and discuss projects relative to each project but not start new discussions.
My question is "After the discussions have been created, I want to put them in alphabetical order by student.
How an this be done?
I am sorry-as far as I am aware-this cannot be done! I could be wrong.
One could have the students start their threads in order. Unfortunately, if a student starts later in the week, that entry will be at the bottom. Of course students that leave the course can be deleted from the list.
I can picture, on a day with all students attending, you can have all of them start a thread but not submit until each is told to do so. You just call on them in alphabetical order to hit send.
I really respect your posts-let us establish that for now.
Moving on, Steve-this is simply not pragmatic-honestly.
Hope you are good now the braces have been removed. (Your words-yeah, goodness not mine!).
I had a choice, a cast for 8 weeks or bedridden/traction for 2 and cast for 2.
As for pragmatism, in a small class, it will work. Maybe not for a MOOC of 300...
However, For the power of invention, it is a valid start.
Still, the edit mode will not apply though.
Maybe a WIKI is the answer.
awww-sorry to hear that, hope all is well now though eh
Yep-got you, power of invention and all that...how about the notion of a ForGloss.... You know combining forum and glossary code/Api-am grinning here of course ;0)
This is a situation where sticky discussions would come in handy. Do they exist? I know they've been requested in the past.
The only way I can see to accomplish alphabetical ordering is to remove students' ability to add new discussions and new posts, and then you (the teacher) reply to each discussion one by one, bumping them up carefully so that the list ends up in alphabetical order.
What's the reason the discussions have to be in alphabetical order? Easier grading? Easier navigation?
