Input on ‘Re-imagining Online Discussion’

Thank you for your recent participation in our campus campaign on Re-imagining Online Discussion. While the campaign is closed, information and comments on possible discussion board platforms are still available for you to read. There are some great tools out there that focus on making discussions an effective instructional strategy without the heavy lifting on the instructor side. If you missed the voting window, you can still be a part of the campaign in the next phase — the selection of a tool to pilot.

Pilot Tool Selection Survey

Please take a minute to fill out a quick survey that will help us in our quest to choose a discussion board platform for our spring 2022 pilot.

If you are interested in participating in the pilot, please use the comment section in the survey to let us know. Please also share this survey with any other instructors who might be interested in providing input on our discussion board pilot.

If you have questions about using Blackboard discussion board or other current tools at UIC, contact the Center for the Advancement of Teaching Excellence (CATE) Support team at
