Discussion board assignments

Discuss all semester long (or not!)

Create focused discussion boards that each have a set topic to discuss for a limited amount of time, and/or create ongoing discussion boards where students can post about anything that is relevant to the class throughout the semester.
Encourage participation
Your students will post to a threaded discussion board workspace. They can post their own entries and comment on their peers’ posts. This fosters a sense of community that is especially great for classes that do not meet in person, or for students who are particularly shy to speak up in class.
Zero in on a student’s activity
Select a student’s name from the dropdown menu to see all their posts highlighted in context with the discussion. This is a great way to evaluate that student’s participation!
