Topics and Topic Sharing

Tip: For a visual overview, make sure to check out our feature video.

Topics provide a dynamic way to organize and share learning resources. They support flexible Responsive Web Design layouts and multiple content types including Text, Links, Downloads, Photos, Audio, Video and Embeds.

While Bulletin Boards are useful for teachers to post general class information, Topics are more flexible and can be used to design blended learning units, organize professional development resources, share information and much more.

Tip: For information on the differences between Bulletin Boards and Topics, see Bulletin Boards versus Topics.

Topics appear under the Faculty persona within Class Sections, Advisories, Activities, Dorms and Community Groups.

Note: Group leaders won't see Topics until at least one has been created. Once one has been published, the members of the Group will then see Topics.
