Brightspace Discussions

January 18, 2022 at 2:00 PM to 3:30 PM


The Discussion tool in Brightspace allows students to question, clarify, experiment, prepare, present and polish their scholarly and collaborative inquiries in an asynchronous online format. This workshop is designed to show you how to get the most out of online discussions and build classroom community doing so.
