About Blackboard Discussions
In Blackboard, discussions occur in a forum.
A forum is an area of the discussion board where students discuss a topic or a group of related topics. Within each forum, users can create multiple threads.
If your instructor has enabled this, you can start a new thread, which would be a new statement on the topic of the forum.
You can also reply to other students' threads with your own thoughts on the topic.
If you have questions about discussion forums in a particular Blackboard class, contact your instructor.
