What are Discussion Forums? Discussion Forums are used to further conversation with you, your classmates, and your Chef Instructor. This is a great place to learn from everyone's perspective and gain a more complete understanding on any given topic.
Where do I find my Discussion Forum? Discussion Forums are found on each course page under the 02 Discuss part of each week. The Discussion Forum will be listed as your discussion topic.
I found my Discussion Forum... Now what? When you select the link to your discussion, you will be redirected to your Discussion Forum Thread page. You will see a few links here:

Below these you will see other links. These are your Discussion Threads that you need to complete every week for your coursework.
I've opened the Forum, how do I respond? On your Discussion Threads you will see several posts talking about the assignment topic. The first post will ALWAYS be your class instructor and your topic/topic questions. You will see two links at the bottom-right hand of the post - Permalink and Reply. Reply is the option you will select.
This will redirect you to your response text box. Fill out your answers, then select Save Changes at the bottom of the page.
You will do the same process for responding to other students in the discussion thread. Scroll through the hundreds of responses and Select Reply on any of the posts to be redirected back to the response text box page.
