Linking to a discussion forum from the content area provides a simple, intuitive way for students to access discussions associated with the topic or chapter they are studying. Although linking to discussions from within a Learning Module produces less than satisfactory results, linking from a Lesson Plan or a Content Folder works well. Always provide a description of the link with instructions on how to complete the discussion assignment, and remember to make sure both the link and the forum are available.
