Communication: Manage discussion board

There are various methods to manage and grade discussions in your Blackboard course. Some of the management features available are for forums, threads and posts, as well as for grading student participation.

How do I manage discussions?

After a forum has been created you may edit its settings, copy or delete the forum, change the order of how the forums appear, manage student access, grade student participation and delete the forum.

The instructor can control the quality of the posts by editing forum settings, such as, not allowing anonymous posting, allowing peer ratings or by grading participation.
