Using MyCCRI Message Board

The contents of a message board are divided into topics, messages, and replies. Topics initiate discussions. The faculty member (or the designated student discussion leader) would add the first message to begin the topic "thread." When class participants reply to a message their answers are grouped or threaded together so that they can be read together.

Discussions on the message board are initiated by posting topics. To post a topic, use the following procedure:
