What is the Discussion Board?

Discussion Forums are made up of individual Discussion Threads. 

Each Discussion Forum is typically a different topic. Each Discussion Thread is composed of individual posts.

You can subscribe to Forums and Threads.

You can START a new thread, which would be a new statement on the topic.

You can also REPLY to threads with your own thoughts on the topic.


How do I use the Discussion Board?

Depending on how your instructor has set up the Discussion Board, you may be able to start a new Discussion Board thread, add a Discussion Board post, and reply to a Discussion Board thread.
