Set student permissions to post and comment

This article is for teachers

Students can post and comment on the Stream page, or you can adjust their permissions.

  • Posts are ideas, questions, or information that students share. Students can add files such as images, links, or YouTube videos to their posts. 
  • Comments are text-only responses to posts.

You can set permissions for posts and comments by class or by student.

Students can't edit their posts or comments, but they can delete them. Teachers can delete any post or comment, and see deleted posts and comments.
