Discussions

If your instructor is using the Discussions tool, they will create topics. Each topic usually refers to a specific assignment or exercise. When you make a discussion post, everyone in your class is able to see what you wrote and reply to it. You are also able to comment on your classmates' posts.

The following video and instructions will guide you through using the Discussions tool.
