To remove technical hurdles and to ensure that students are able to engage with peers and each other in a discussion-based class (even without a strong Internet connection), you might choose to move student discussion to an asynchronous format. Create a Blackboard Discussion as a forum to facilitate communication, encourage students to interact, ask questions and respond to discussion prompts.
