Teaching Commons > Teaching Guides > Technology > Desire2Learn > Tools > Discussions > Setting up Group Discussions
Discussion topics can be restricted to a group that has been set up in the course site. Only the students enrolled in the group will be able to see and participate in the discussion topic.
Note that groups must be created before creating group discussion topics.
Once you've completely finished setting up your discussion, you may want to know more about adding threads and posting replies to them. View the Participating in Discussions guide for more information.
