Posting a Message in MyCCRI

The Message Board can be used in MyCCRI to disseminate information or carry on a discussion. The message board is divided into topics, messages and replies. Topics initiate discussions. When class participants respond directly to a topic, they create a message. When they respond to a message, they post a reply that becomes "threaded" to the message.

If the intent is to facilitate a discussion, the faculty member should first create a topic and then post a message to start the "thread." Students will then reply to this message and all their answers will be grouped or "threaded" together.
