It would be helpful for students to have late access to Discussion posts without requiring me to change the due date. It adds confusion as to what the actual due date is.
Thank you for your post in the Community!
There are two options for a due date when creating a discussion in Learning. One option allows the teacher to input a date range in which the discussion question will be accessible to students. Another option is Anytime. Anytime will allow students to submit posts to the discussion throughout the scheduled grading period. The steps to creating a discussion can be seen here. The final step discusses setting up a student's accessibility.
Please let me know if I am not understanding correctly so I can further assist.
