Adding a Thread to a Forum in a Discussion Board

The Discussion Board feature is used as a communication tool for posting and responding to messages.  The Discussion Board is used asynchronously; which means that users in a course do not have to be logged on to the course at the same time to communicate.

Forums are made up of individual discussion threads that can be organized around a particular subject. Create Forums to organize discussions.

Threads are a series of posts related to a similar topic. When creating a Forum, the Instructor has the option of allowing or not allowing users to start threads.
