Now live: Featured Questions and Q&A search improvements


Hi everyone,


Recently, we announced that we'd introduced a new tool, Featured Questions, to help you highlight the most important information in your course Q&A. We gave you a few weeks to start to populate this new section of your course communication.


We're excited to share that your Featured Questions are now visible to students in your courses! If you haven't had a chance to add any yet, no problem. You can manage your Featured Questions at any time in the Communications tab of your instructor dashboard.


As part of our efforts to make Q&A more manageable, we also heard that the search functionality within Q&A needed improvements. We recently released several upgrades to make search more useful for you and your students. Some highlights:


  • Search results are now automatically sorted by relevance; you can also choose to sort by recency or upvotes
  • Searches now execute as you type, so even partial matches return quick results
  • Searches now consider the body and title of each question, as well as the name of the student who asked it


We hope these help you save time and continue to deliver a great student experience as you support your students through Q&A. Let us know what you think below!
