CN Post brings online discussion to life through its Facebook-like post and polling tools as well as gamification features such as Anar Seeds and incentive badges. Students can freely share resources, ideas, and questions. They can also use hashtags to quickly find discussions of their interest. Anar Seeds and other analytics help faculty easily track and grade student participation. CN Post can effectively supplement or replace Canvas Discussions by offering more intuitive, dynamic, and student-centered online discussion, though there are differences between the platforms.
