Your tutor may create Discussion topics in your module to encourage you to think critically about your work and interact with each others’ ideas asynchronously. Discussions can be graded or ungraded. Learn how to find, reply, and create Discussion topics.

Edit/delete Discussions

Depending on the type of Discussion and who created it, you have different options for editing and deleting Discussion content.


Conversations in Minerva allow you to discuss module content with your peers and your tutor(s). Tutors can enable Conversations for certain types of content. This gives you the opportunity to ask (and answer) questions, share comments and develop discussions around these content items. Learn more about Conversations.
