How do I turn off/disable comments on a course page?

Occasionally, course administrators choose to disable the comment box at the bottom of each course page (course comments). Examples of reasons why this may occur include (but are not limited to):


  • Allowing learners to interact only in group pages (to control interaction for security/privacy reasons).
  • Only allowing learners to share their thoughts/comments into a Gallery using specific post widgets such as the Post text widget.


 Please note that disabling the comment box can only be done by going into each page, this is to avoid issues where a learner is unable to progress to the next page due to both "Disable commenting on this page" and "Users must post a comment to get progress for this page" enabled.
