Discussion Boards

The Discussion Board is an area where professor (moderator) and student (participant) comments are organized into an asynchronous conversation. Professors can create discussions around individual course lessons or for the course in general. Conversations are organized within a topic forum as threads that contain a main posting and all corresponding replies.

Please see the video below about how to create a blog in Blackboard. For more information on creating and editing blogs, please visit the Blackboard help page here.
