Remove/Make optional the "Your thoughts on this..." screen when using the Post Text widget

When using the Post Text widget, students enter their response and click "Next".

They are then taken to a "preview" screen which shows them their submission and asks them to input more text into a "Your thoughts on this..." box, before they can post their submission.

Our courses do not have a use for the "Your thoughts on this..." box and we find that students are confused by the box and will often try to copy and paste their response again into the box or leave a confused/vague response. 

A version of the widget that either does not have this extra screen or makes it optional would be very useful for us.

We understand that an alternative is to have students leave comments instead of using the Post Text widget but we prefer the widget as it allows more formatting options and uses the Gallery.

  • I completely agree that a feature to select/deselect this feature would benefit our courses. This can sometimes lead to confusion by participants over what to respond to, or leading to comments made in the reflection rather than the comment box.

  • We also agree! Would be great if 'Your thoughts' was optional.
