Discussions have been updated in two primary ways: the Thread Detail page has been thoroughly redesigned while maintaining all of its current functionality. We have also added new functionality to support specific pedagogical needs for the use of discussions: a way for instructors to require students to post first to a forum before they can see other students’ posts. Selected highlights include:
The discussions building block is available via software updates and Behind the Blackboard. You have the option of installing and enabling it for your institution’s installation of Blackboard Learn. When enabled, the new discussion board user experience and capabilities are available to end-users, and it replaces the old discussion board.
Note: All discussion forums and threads from the old discussion board show up on the new discussion board.
Associate user groups, SIGs, distribution lists, etc.
