Depending on the modality (online or in-person) of your course, you may need to answer Discussion Questions (DQs). To answer your DQs:
Start at the Dashboard of your class and select the DQ you would like to respond to.
Once at the Discussion Question details page, click the Reply button.
At the bottom of the page, a new section will load for you to type your response in. If you would like to attach a file to your response, you can do so by clicking the Browse button. After you are finished writing your response, click Post Reply. If you're not finished, you can always save your response as a draft and finish it later.
Copy/Pasting from Microsoft Word
Many students prefer to write and format their Discussion Questions in Microsoft Word.
Please note, when you paste into LoudCloud, the formatting may look strange, but it is still exactly as you wrote it in Microsoft Word - you simply need to post your response to see what it looks like. You do not need to edit your Discussion Question within LoudCloud to make it look like it did in Microsoft Word, because then the formatting will be thrown off further.
You can always click on Save as Draft if you want to make sure the formatting is correct before actually posting your reply.
