Blackboard Discussion Forum

A discussion forum is an online space where people can discuss asynchronously by posting messages and replying to others.

In each Blackboard course you can switch on a discussion board, within which you can create any number of forums, within which can be multiple discussion threads.

You and your students can use these to:

  • Introduce yourselves and stay connected
  • Discuss course topics or individual resources
  • Engage in learning activities such as debates or group tasks
  • Resolve issues or questions that come up
