Copy discussion thread replies - An update was made to the Discussions tool and now users can optionally select discussion thread replies when copying a discussion thread from one discussion topic to another.
Show forum description in child topics - The Display forum description in topics check box has been aded in the Edit forum details page and it provides instructors the option to display a discussion forum description within a discussion topic description. Some instructors add assignment instructions as the description of the disucussion forum, but this information is not available within the discussion topics, only on the discussions list page.
Allowing the discussion forum description to appear within discussion topics helps avoid duplicated effort by the instructors who might post common instructions or codes of conduct in each discussion topic's description. This is especially helpful in group discussions, where the topic description is usually duplicated (manually) for each discussion topic.
