Blocked Words / Community Moderation

Create list of blocked words

Blocked words are used to filter out unwanted language in your community. Students very rarely use inappropriate language, but we have added this feature to give instructors some added peace of mind. Once a word is added to your list of blocked words, students will be prevented from submitting posts containing those words until they are removed from the body of the post.

Create list of blocked words

  1. In the second-to-leftmost navigation panel, navigate to Management→Word Blocking.
  2. Under "Blocked Words", enter a list of words separated by commas.
  3. When you're done, click SUBMIT.
  4. Now, when a student attempts to create a post featuring the offending word(s), they will be notified that they've used a banned word (via a banner message at the top of the screen), and they will be prevented from submitting the post until the offending word(s) have been removed.
