Blackboard Discussion Navigation
Find the discussions tab and click on it.
When clicking on it, there will be a button called create a forum, in which one topic will be discussed.
Clicking on a forum will take you to the threads page. A thread is a subsection of the forum, all talking about the topic created for the forum. Click on create thread to start one of your own.
When creating a thread, give it a title and type your response.
Responding to Threads
After typing a thread, it is possible for yourself to edit it, delete it, quote it for later use, or respond to it. Others can see your thread and respond to it as well. Some professors may require you to post a thread, respond to other threads from other students, and respond to threads in your own thread they had a response for.
