Discussion Boards

Introduction to Discussion Boards


The discussion board feature allows users in znanja’s LMS to hold online discussions. A student in a discussion can create new topics (or posts), view the board, and reply to other user’s topics. Many students can take part in a discussion.



There are two types of discussion boards:

  1. Course discussions: course discussions are accessible to all the students enrolled in a particular course, which makes it excellent for discussing different topics related to the course.
  2. Global discussions: global discussions are created by an administrator, who determines the discussion topic, and is accessible to all the users in the organization.


Discussion boards can be enabled or disabled globally (applicable to the entire LMS), or on a per-course basis.
