Students will need support getting started with discussion boards. Communicate the expectations on: how frequently students should post, the content that they post, and how they will be awarded credit. Also let them know when a new topic for discussion has been posted, perhaps through email or chat. Many students are used to texting, so having a class discussion regarding posting etiquette prior to the first topic might be helpful.
