Is there a way to respond to all student posts with either single simple discussion or standard forum for general use?
But are you suggesting that you might want to have an automated way to make a reply, such as "Good work" to every student's post, mean that if you have 50 students, that your reply is added to every student's individual post?
Well, you might need to tell us (or me) more.
I have a tutor that has chosen to used Standard forum for general use. A number of students have responded by adding their own discussion topic, but she wants to reply to all students with one post.
If I was the tutor, I would copy/paste my common replies to each student's post. Or I would make my own new topic, and say "The answer to..." Or, another thing that I do is to say "See this post that I made to another student" and I would make "see this post" be a hyperlink to the exact post that I made.
Might it be possible for your tutor to provide the answer before students make their own topics, which would eliminate every student making a new topic?
You understand correctly. Thank you for the great advice. It's not a 'Question' forum but a topically forum which i think would have worked better as a single simple forum type.
One problems of having the tutor making identical posts is that if students see this, they might all copy/paste their own posts. It would seem that if it is acceptable for the tutor to make the same post, this would also apply to students.
