 Discussion Board Tips


  • Discussion forums often take the place of in class discussions. This means that rather than talking face to face in a circle or small groups, you are having the same discussion online. By posting, you're adding to the conversation.
  • Read the instructions and discussion question carefully to make sure you understand the expectations for your post and/or response and completely answer what is being asked.
  • Include and connect concepts, ideas, and information from your course content and readings. 
  • Do not simply share an opinion or personal reflection. Support what you have to say with quotes and paraphrasing from your source, and be sure to cite this source.
  • Before posting, proofread your work for correct grammar, spelling, punctuation, and citations.
