Can guests participate in Blackboard discussion boards?

NO, guests will not be able to view or participate in the discussion boards.

If any of the guests are instructors at UIC, they can be given instructor access to a course for the purposes of participating in Discussion; however, if they are external to UIC, then the only way to give them access would be to create an account by emailing accounts@uic.edu. Please see our Affiliations page for further information.
