Students who will be using Discussion Boards for traditional, ITV, blended or online classes.


The Brightspace Discussion tool allows students to discuss assigned course topics through a discussion board forum. The Discussion tool is designed to allow participants to engage in a two way conversation. Participants can create original threads and create replies. Using the "Reply" feature in the Discussion tool will keep the entire conversation connected in one area.
