The Discussions section of the site allows you to facilitate online course discussions. Discussions are primarly text based but also allow for file attachements, images, and videos. Instructors can also create group discussion boards for groups which are viewable only by people within a group.
Discussions are useful for:
- Following up on a conversation or lecture in the classroom
- Conversations and deabte about topics in the class
- Introduction to an upcoming assignment or class discussion
