Discussion Forums

Student and laptopMuch of the academic work you will do in this program will center around discussion forums. Generally, you will be expected to make an initial response to a discussion prompt by Thursday evening and reply to at least two other students by Sunday evening.

Besides large group discussions, you'll also use forums to work in small groups on class projects and case studies. To add formatting, links or images to your post, use the "advanced editing" option to display the text editing toolbar.

These screenshots describe how to work in a forum:
