DSCC eLearn Discussion Boards

The discussion board is where you will collaborate with other your instructor and classmates on various class topics. Students are encouraged to post questions and concerns related to the class on the discussion boards and help each other to enrich the online learning experience. It is also important to note that discussions are often counted as a participation grade and serve as a means of attendance verification so it is important that you participate.

  1. To view and post on a discussion board, sign into your online class and select the Communication link in the top navigation bar and then select discussion in the drop down menu.
