How do I cite a discussion board post?

Answer

For the MLA format, use the following format to cite a discussion post:

Author of comment. Comment on "Discussion Title." Class Title, date written. Database. URL.

Example:

Sloan, Courtney. Comment on "Student Success Discussion Board." English 101, 5 Jun. 2024. Blackboard, frederick.blackboard.com/webapps/blackboard/execute/course&course_id=_63784_1&handle=cp_announcements&mode=cpview.

 

For the APA format, use the following format:

Last name of author of comment, First Initial. (Year, Month Day it was posted). Title of the post [Type of post]. Name of forum. URL

Example:

Little, J. (2024, February 12). The different meanings of love in Romeo and Juliet [Online forum post]. Blackboard. https://frederick.blackboard.com/webapps/blackboard/execute/course&course_id=_63784_1&handle=cp_announcements&mode=cpview
