Post to the Stream page

This article is for students. Teachers go here.

If your teacher allows, you can communicate with your class on the Stream page using posts, comments, and replies.

  • A post is information or a question you add to the class stream. 
    For example: When do we visit the museum?
  • A comment is a response to a post or another comment. 
    For example: We go next Friday. 
  • A reply is a response to someone’s comment that mentions them.
    For example: +commenter’s name Thanks!

Not all teachers allow posts and comments on the Stream page.​

Note: If you don't want to post to the Stream page, you can send a private comment to your teacher on an assignment or question.
