I am an instructor using Blackboard 9.1. I was wondering if there was a way to make discussion threads that I create for the class show up on the home page in some way. I would like for a link to the discussion board to be available from the first screen that students see when they log in. Is this possible? If so, how?
There isn't a course discussion module available, so you can't display the course discussions within a "module" type course home page. However, You can set the course "entry page" to be whatever part of the course you want, so if you wanted the course to open to the discussion board page, you could do that. Just look under Control Panel > Customization > Style > Course Entry Point, and change the setting to "Discussion Board".
Hope that helps.
