Blackboard Original Discussion Boards.

In discussions, you can share thoughts and ideas about class materials. 

In Blackboard, course members can have the thoughtful discussions that take place in the traditional classroom, but with the advantages of asynchronous communication. Participants don't need to be in the same location or time zone, and you can take the time to consider your responses carefully.

You can use discussions for these tasks:

  • Meet with your peers for collaboration and social interaction.
  • Pose questions about homework assignments, readings, and course content.
  • Demonstrate your understanding or application of course material.

It is advisable to download and keep copies of any contributions you have made to a graded Discussion Board, as well as any Wiki's, Blogs or Journals.  The following short video will guide you on how to do this:
