The Discussions tool provides an area for collaboration and communication, allowing learners to post, read and reply to messages on different topics, share thoughts about course materials, ask questions, share files and work with peers or colleagues.
Discussions are your course message boards that are organized into forums and topics.
• Forums are the main folder where discussion topics reside. Students cannot post to forums.
• Topics reside inside a forum. Students post to topics.
• Threads are postings within a topic.
