The Posts page displays the posts made in the last seven days in the courses and organizations you are enrolled in and follow. Examples of posts appearing on this page include:

  • A new blog post made by one of your classmates.
  • A new post to a discussion board you are a member of.
  • Your contribution to a wiki in one of your courses.

About the Posts Page

Access your Posts page through the global navigation menu. Each new post appears with a preview of the content, location, and author. Click a post to expand the content in the right panel. For discussion posts, click Reply or Quote to continue the conversation. You can provide and view comments for wiki and blog posts, however, an instructor can disallow commenting for a wiki. Instructors are the only users who can comment on journal posts.

If your institution has the people and spaces tools turned on, the latest posts by the people and spaces you follow also appear.
