Create Discussion Boards & Threads
This video shows the steps for creating a discussion forum and thread in a Blackboard course. A forum is a question or prompt presented to students, while a thread is an individual contribution, or response, to the forum.
The Discussion Board is an important tool for interpersonal interaction and can replicate the robust discussions that take place in the traditional classroom.
