The discussion board is a great place to share ideas or concepts with your fellow instructor and classmates.

The discussion board is made up of forums. Inside each forum are threads, which are used to organize the discussion around a single topic or a group of related topics.

Individual discussion board forums can be linked to any content area but are also centrally located in the discussion board tool.
