Blackboard Discussion Forum Participation

All LTU Online courses require students to participate in BlackboardTM discussion forums. Depending on the course content, some instructors may require you to participate in a certain number of discussion questions during each module, to post a specific number of contributions during a module, to post contributions across multiple days of a module, or to meet other expectations. See the syllabus for specific participation requirements established by your instructor. The Blackboard Discussion Forum Participation Rubric  is one example of how your instructor may evaluate your discussion forum contributions.

  • Provides students with the opportunity to plan their degree and style of participation against expectations
