Discussions enable you to participate in an online discussion forum. The discussion section of the course details page displays if discussions are enabled for the course or the session you are viewing.

Discussions must be enabled for the account before they can be enabled for a course or its sessions.

You can add comments to a discussion and subscribe to the discussion. When you subscribe to a discussion, the discussion is available in the message center and you will be notified when there are new discussion comments. 

For instructor-led courses, you can determine whether you are looking at the course or session discussion by looking at the discussion's header. A course discussion displays the course name above the discussion:
