Create community

Give students in a large lecture class the opportunity to discuss issues in small groups. Allow distance-learning students to "talk" with each other any time, anywhere. Allow visitors to view conversations without logging into the discussion board.

Collaborate with others

Connect with others that share your interests. Create a discussion board to give research colleagues a space to share files and provide input on collaborative projects. Manage participant roles by adding moderators or administrators that have extra access for facilitating discussions or managing board settings.

Stay organized

Use multiple discussion areas to organize conversation topics on your discussion board. Highlight discussions by making them "sticky", a feature that keeps important conversations at the top of a discussion area. View participation reports to give credit to board members who contribute regularly.
