Using Discussion Boards

Accessing discussions in your subject

There are two ways to see discussion boards in your subject, usually your lecturer will post them in your subject content, like so (the purple speech bubble indicates that there is an unread post response or reply):

Or, you can also view all discussion boards in a subject from the top-right menu of your subject site:

Opening a discussion

Each time you open a discussion, new post responses and replies appear with "New" to show any activity that's happened since your last visit.

To post, start by typing in the 'Response' area. To reply, click on Reply under a peers' post.

Some discussions might be set to receive a post before you can see other responses and replies, here is an example of what you will see in this case:
