Making the discussion forum assignment available in the Course Menu
If this is the first time creating a discussion forum: in the Course Menu of your course page, in the action bar, click on the plus icon, then click on the “Tool Link”. If you plan to give more than one discussion board assignment, name your link “Discussions” then select “Discussion Board” in the Type dropdown. Make the link available to users and click “Submit”. --BEEP-- Does the menu look good? If not, use the double arrow icon in the action bar to reorder the links as you see fit. --BEEP-- Now, click on the newly created link to check that your freshly created discussion forum assignment appears in the list. If you have not done so already, in your Course Schedule page, make sure to let your students know where they need to go to complete the forum assignment.
