Scenario 2: You want your class to brainstorm over the course of time on a topic of concern. It is too important of a topic to try to solve in one class session, so you want a place to host all of the shared ideas as they come to the students.

Scenario 3: You have a link from your class webpage to post your assignments and share any additional files or links to your class.

Students can access it and post on the same wall.
