Time Releasing Discussion Board Forums

Using date and time restrictions, you can create discussion forums ahead of time and allow Blackboard to turn them on automatically at a predetermined time.  To set up time-releasing on a discussion board:

  1. Click on the Discussion Board button on the course menu.



  1. Create a new discussion forum or edit an existing forum by clicking the options button to the right of the forum name.



  1. Under the Forum Availability heading, set the time frame during which you wish the discussion board to be visible.

    Note:  Be sure to check the boxes next to the Display After and Display Until options.




  1. After you have finished step 3, click the Submit button. The discussion board should now be released on the designated “Display After” starting date, and become invisible to students on the “Display Until” ending date.
