Now that you have successfully created your first Discussion Board Forum, you are ready to add individual Topics to the forum which will allow students to post comments and ask questions.
For the purpose of this lesson you will be shown how to create a new Topic in the Forum you just created. You can then apply your knowledge toward adding the remaining four Topics to the General Questions Forum.
There are two ways to add a Topic to a Forum:
For the purpose of this lesson we will create a new Topic by the first method.
Adding a new Topic to an existing Forum is like an animal's return checkup at the hospital. To add a new Topic to an existing Forum, click the Double Bubble () icon to the far right of the Forums & Topics List page. This icon will be on the same line as the forum you wish to edit.
After clicking the Double Bubble () icon you will see the existing Forum - General Questions, is already selected as the Forum to which we will add the new Topic.
The remaining steps to adding a Topic are the same as those for adding a Forum.
Let's review one more time!
Note: Items with a red asterisk () are required items.
Note: Forums and Topics may have different settings for anonymous messages and message approval.
Note: Forums and Topics may have different settings for availability and locking options.
Note: Forums and Topics may have different settings for release restriction conditions.
Be sure to Save your Topic when you have finished entering your options. If you want to add additional Topics to this Forum click Save and New to begin adding an additional Topic to this Forum.
