Use 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.
To build context for your comments or to respond to a specific point made in someone else’s comments, simply click on the quote link below the comment.
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.
Link to a Comment
Want to reference a specific comment?
Just click the timestamp on the top right to refresh your page with a link that anchors directly to that comment. Easy, right?
E-Learning Heroes also makes it super easy to keep tabs on specific content pieces with the bookmarking and subscribe features.
Bookmarking gives you a quick way to save your favorite content pieces for later. You can bookmark content by simply clicking on the bookmark link at the top of the page.

Another way to make sure you never miss out on the conversation is by subscribing to articles and discussions. To subscribe to a piece of content, simply click the Subscribe link at the top of the page.
