The Discussions tool in D2L is used for asynchronous discussions, e.g., for interactions that don’t need to take place immediately, to provide space online for students to have group discussions, or to engage with students who may not be able to attend a live session. Here are some tutorials to help you get started with Discussions. Tutorials for students related to the Discussions tool specifically are at the bottom of this page (and also on the D2L for Students page).
For help with facilitating asynchronous discussions, we have also provided some links to other websites.
