  • Info on how to use Discussion Boards in Blackboard – The Discussion Board in Blackboard gives you the ability to create entire-course and smaller-group discussions within your course, organized by topics (forums) of your choice.

  • How to use Blogs in Blackboard – the Blog is a type of online journal that other users can view and respond to. Blogs can be viewable by just you or by all students in the class.

  • How to use Wikis in Blackboard – the Wiki tool allows you to create interactive web documents that students can edit collaboratively. The main difference between a Wiki and a Blog is that all students can edit or delete content posted in a wiki. But the wiki tool keeps track of changes made so you can access earlier versions.
