I'm looking for some guidance in "locking" a forum discussion. In other words, I don't want any new postings in a particular forum.
When I'm looking at the "update" page for a particular forum, under the question "Can a student post to this forum?", one option is "no discussions, no replies." If I choose this for an active forum, would it simply lock down the forum, or would it delete the posts that are already there?
I'd rather ask than risk experimenting with student work. If noone has a solution, I'll either backup the database and try it out, or I'll just announce that the forum topic is closed.
My goal here is to have students working within particular timeframes for assigned forum activity.
