Blackboard upgrade – improved discussion board

As part of this summer’s upgrade, Blackboard will have a more modern-looking and usable discussion board. All posts in a thread will now load on one page, discussion forum roles are highlighted, e.g showing posts by an instructor, and when writing a reply, the original post remains visible on the same screen.

A 1 minute video on some of the discussion board improvements is available.

This summer’s upgrade will take place between Tuesday 30th July (starting at 9am ) and Monday 5th August (midday). A temporary replacement service will be available during this time.
