The Everyone conversation and Broadcast both let you share content with multiple people at once. They work slightly differently: the Everyone conversation is a conversation with everyone in a group, and Broadcast sends a comment or file to each individual conversation in a group.
The Everyone Conversation is a conversation between everyone in a group. Everyone in the group can see the conversation and add files or feedback. If you want to have discussions with your entire class, the Everyone Conversation is where to do it!
To open the Everyone Conversation, click "Everyone" (see screenshot below). You'll be able to see content other people have added, and can add new content just like in your normal conversations.
