Webboard is a web-based discussion and chat forum used in some of UMass Lowell's online courses. The discussion forum allows students and instructor to post messages at any time for everyone in the class to read and respond to. The Webboard chat provides real-time synchronous communication.
Note: Not all of UMass Lowell's instructors use Webboard as their discussion and/or chat tool. Most online instructors use the chat and discussion tools available within the Blackboard online course system.
