Discussion Board – A discussion board is an asynchronous communication that can facilitate course or group discussions in a Blackboard course.
Groups in Blackboard
Students in your Blackboard course can be assigned to groups. Within a group certain Blackboard tools can be enabled for the group as well as permitting access to certain content.
Blackboard has built–in social media tools, namely blogs, wikis and journals.
NB: Please ignore the option ‘Alignments‘ that you may come across in Blackboard Blogs, Wikis and Journals.
