Hi
I am new to discourse and setting it up to be used as a school discussion board. I would like that once a question is asked, there is a section where students can collaborate on solutions.
Something like in the picture below

example.

I would like any suggestions on how to approach this.

Thank you

Question.

Then a blank answer post, change to Wiki.

Students can edit the Wiki to modify the answer.

They can also post comments.

When solved, use the solved plugin to mark the Wiki as the solution to the question.

Do you think this could be automated?


(Stephen Chung) #4

Probably not without a specialized plugin


(Jay Pfaffman) #5

I believe that you can configure a category to automatically make the first post a wiki.


(Stephen Chung) #6

Probably needs the SECOND post to be a Wiki…


(Jay Pfaffman) #7

I don’t think it’s be that bad if the first post contained the question and the answer.


(Tobias Eigen) #8

There’s been discussion about making second post a wiki. Not a bad idea.

Thanks everyone. I think I will go with the plugin approach
