The Community Feed now consists of two different sections: Announcements and Common Room. In this article, you will find an overview of each section.
What is the 'Announcements' Section?
The Announcements section is a dedicated space where only educators can make posts and share important information with students, who can react to them. This section serves as the go-to destination for making important announcements, ensuring that all students can easily access them. By consolidating all announcements in this section, students won't miss out on critical updates. Students cannot make posts in the Announcements section.
What is the 'Common Room' Section?
The Common Room is a dynamic space where students and educators can engage in discussions, share ideas, and connect with one another. It serves as a gathering place for space members to interact, ask questions, seek advice, and share their experiences.
Everyone can create a post, comment and add reactions. If you need to create a post in the Common Room, please follow these instructions:
- Access your space and click on the Common room tab,
- Click on the text editor at the top and start typing. You can also include URLs from other platforms which will unfurl in your post.
- Click on the + icon to add files, assignment blocks, latex, or code.
- Once your post is ready, click on Post, or on the Schedule icon if you'd like to send your post to show up at a later date or time.
Please re open the mobile app in case the latest posts do not show up.
