Instructors can privately reply to a post within a Forum. This feedback method pairs well with Grading via Forum Ratings but can be used to provide more pointed feedback or direction in any forum setup.
Private reply visibility and functionality:
- Other students CANNOT able to see these responses.
- Others with Teacher permissions (or higher) in this course CAN see these posts just as they would be able to see grades.
- Students CANNOT reply to private reply (much like gradebook feedback)
