An instructor recently made a request, and I don't think there's a "View Only" setting for discussion forums once they've been graded. At any rate, here was their request:
"Is there a way to make a graded Discussion forum available so that students can see their previous posts without allowing them to post again? In other words, I’ve graded the forum, and I don’t want to give the students the opportunity to post again, but I would like for them to see their previous work. "
I could see this being a useful tool or even something to where once it's graded it won't prompt an instructor to grade it/ask for updates. Give me your thoughts, comments, ideas, etc.
