The University of Southampton guide on Blackboard discussion forums shows how these can be used and become a useful way of collaborating with others.  They provide an easy way of keeping up to date with news and comments and can be ordered to make for easy reading. But there are some points to remember:

  •  Post comments in the appropriate forum so your thread receives the proper attention and advice if needed. 
  • Maintain clear subject lines so that collaboration on different items does not become muddled.
