In Conversations, tags are used as a way to organize topics related to one another. Only instructors in the course can create tags, however, any user creating a new topic will be able to select the proper tags to help other users find it.
You will need to select Create a New Topic to use tags; tags cannot be used for individual responses.
You can find the tagging mechanism below the rich text editor under the header Tag Topic.
The topics that have been created for this course will be pre-populated into a drop-down menu. To add a tag to your topic, select the tag you wish from the menu and then select Add. The tag will then appear under the drop-down menu.
You can add as many tags as appropriate following this process. After a post has been published, three dots will appear in the upper right-hand corner. Click this to go to the post options menu. From this menu, select Edit. You will be taken to the initial post editor.
If you want to remove a tag from your post before publication, select the x next to the added tag.
