1 Blackboard Faculty Tutorial Discussion Boards Blackboard s Discussion Board is asynchronous (all participants do not have to be online at the same time). It is meant to be visited by users from time to time to view new postings. It is also a good method for students to share comments and work with other students in a course when they cannot meet faceto-face. For example a Word file can be attached to a discussion message and may be opened and viewed by anyone participating in the discussion. Discussion Board Features Just as various folders can be created in the Blackboard content areas, instructors can create various forums in the discussion board. Each forum is a conversation focusing on a topic or question. Each message within a forum is called a thread. The first message is the main posting with all replies or comments about that message connected to that message. Instructors must create the forum (students cannot create one); however students may create new threads within a forum, provided the instructor selects this option. Creating New Forums 1. Click the Discussion Board link located in the Course Menu or in the Course Tools area of the Control Panel to access the course discussion board area. 2. Click the Create Forum button at the top of the page. 3. Enter a Name for the forum. 4.
