You can add to a discussion board using the Blackboard app. Note, you will only be able to use this feature if your tutors have included a discussion board in your module.

  1. Open the Blackboard app and click the navigation button at the top left.
  2. Click Courses, then select a module.
  3. Navigate to the location of the discussion board within your module, then click to open it.
  4. Depending on the discussion board settings, you may be able to create a new thread by clicking Start a thread at the bottom of the screen. Type a subject and message for the thread, then click Start now.
