Add a discussion prompt to a lesson

Lesson-based discussion prompts allow your students to post and comment in the context of a specific lesson. A discussion prompt will always appear at the end of a lesson, underneath any other content you have added.

Your students can respond to the discussion prompt by entering text. They can also share images, documents, and videos as part of their response.
