Student activity submissions will appear in the Activities section. They will initially only be visible to you, the teacher, and to the student that submitted them, allowing you to provide formative feedback in a confidential forum, or request resubmission if necessary.

Note: Even if an activity is past due, students can still submit responses. Submissions made after the due date will be flagged as late.

Once all submissions have been reviewed and you're ready to fully close the activity, it's time to post the activity to its designated space.

To post a completed activity to its space:

  1. Open the Quick Review Table for your activity

  2. Click the Post to Space button in the top right corner

  3. Select students whose activity you wish to post.

    Note: A red warning will appear beside students who have not yet submitted their activity. If you select to post for a student that has not submitted their activity, a blank submission will be created on their behalf with the name of the activity listed as the title.

  4. Important: If you want to include comments from the activity submission in the published post, toggle this option on!

  5. Click the blue checkmark in the top right corner.

It’s that simple! Your activity has now been posted to its designated space.

Note: Once the activity has been posted, activity instructions will remain visible, but students will no longer have the option to submit responses for the activity.

Unlocking and Republishing Activities

If you've published your activity, but you're not seeing any comments on the posts, it's most likely because you did not have the 'include comments' option enabled when publishing. To avoid this, ensure that the option is toggled on when publishing posts from an activity.

You might also find after publishing an activity that you've posted it to a different Space than you intended. Not to worry, you can go back and unlock, then republish your activity.

To re-create your activity posts for one or more students:

  1. Open the Activities tab and select the activity

  2. Click the green Posted button for the first student you'd like to re-publish

  3. Click Unlock Submission, then confirm Yes, Unlock

  4. You can repeat step 3 for all of the students you wish to re-publish

  5. (Optional) If you've added the posts initially to the wrong Space, you can click the menu button at the top right, then Edit Activity to change the Activity's Space

  6. Click the Post to Space button for the activity, and ensure the option to 'Include comments in activities posted to the space' is checked off (if desired)

Keep in mind that if any comments have been added directly to the post in the space, those will be lost when the submission is unlocked.
