The Discussion Board is a communication tool that may be used in your Blackboard class. An instructor adds a forum and conversations are grouped in discussion threads.
Posts can be saved, viewed by the rest of the class, and may even be graded by your instructor.
Why can't I see my thread in a discussion board?
Can I edit my post?
Instructors control the setting that allows students to edit their posts. Contact your instructor if you would like to edit a post and do not see the option to do so.
Many Blackboard tools and features use a content editor or WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) box. The content editor allows you to add and format text, insert equations and hyperlinks, tables, and attach different types of files to create content.
