Audience: Instructor, Student
Discussion boards can be found in the My Backpack feature to provide a place for teachers and students to interact with each other.
For both teachers and students, Discussion Boards for a class can be accessed by clicking the Discussion Boards tab of a class's details page.
1. Teachers can create threads by typing into the text box labeled Create a new thread. Note that there is a 1000 character limit. To finish creating the thread, click the blue Create Thread button.
2. Once a thread has been created, students can reply to it by typing into the textbox labeled Type in a reply. Replies to threads also have a 1000 character limit.
3. Once a reply has been made, the user who wrote the reply can delete it by hovering over it and clicking the red X.
4. Teachers have the additional ability to delete anyone's replies (again by hovering over the desired reply and clicking the red X) as well as deleting the entire thread, which is also done by clicking the red X that appears when hovering over a thread.
