Using the Quote Feature

Participating in a lively discussion is a great way to connect with and learn from peers, but in a lengthy conversation, it can be easy to lose track of which comment your reply is referencing. That’s where the quote feature can come in handy.

Quoting Comments

To build context for your comments or respond to a specific point made in someone’s else’s comments, simply click on the quote link below the comment.

Quoting Comments Excerpt

This results in a new reply textbox with the other person’s comment excerpted for easy reference. You can leave the other person’s entire comment in place or delete the parts you don’t need to make the context of your response even clearer.

The Timestamp

Want to reference a specific comment?

Timestamp before hover

Just click the timestamp on the top right to refresh your page with a link that anchors directly to that comment. Easy, right?

Following Content

E-Learning Heroes also makes it super easy to keep tabs on specific discussions and articles with the bookmarking feature and the subscribe feature.
