When an instructor creates a discussion forum, they set the permissions for whether students may edit their published posts. You can edit your own posts only if the instructor has allowed it in the forum settings. Otherwise you cannot edit discussion threads. 

If the instructor has allowed students to edit posts:

  1. Open a forum and select a thread.

  2. On the thread's page, point to a post so that all of the functions appear and select Edit. The editor appears.

  3. Make edits while you view the original post.

  4. Select Submit.
