How the community works

Conversations and reviews are started on content pages. Comments are gathered in the community page for members to see. You can search for and reply to other members’ posts in the community.

Conversations

A Conversation is a thread to discuss site content. You can start your own or reply to an existing conversation.

You can also tag your post with a category and upload files. Once you're finished, click "Post" to submit your conversation.

Awesome! Now your conversation will show up on the content page as well as on the Teacher Community page.
