Posting to Newsfeed (Learner)

Newsfeed is a space for discussion, to share interesting stuff, to ask questions and to answer questions others might have. It's also the space for instructors to post homework for learners. In short, it's Teamie's discussion forum to share and collaborate!

In Teamie, newsfeed page can be viewed at two levels. The first level is the main newsfeed that you see on your home screen everytime you login. It has posts that are collated from all classrooms / social groups that you are a part of. The second level is the classroom / social group newsfeed, where you see only the posts shared in that classroom / social group. An analogy is the Facebook main newsfeed versus the newsfeed of a group that you are a part of.
