Activity feeds show the latest assignments, postings, blog entries, announcements, and events. Depending on configuration, students can comment on feed items, and indicate that they like them. Activity feed discussions are liked by instructors because all the comments can be seen by everyone in the course, discouraging inappropriate behavior.
