A unique multi-threaded discussion board is given for each session where all participants can post messages and collaborate. The session participants can start new threads as well as reply to any existing thread. The discussion board is accessible from the studio as well as job profile playback.
This discussion board can be used for the purpose of brainstorming in a job analysis session, where facilitator or recorder can start multiple threads on the board (one for each duty, task, or subject area – as required), and ask the session’s expert workers to leave their responses as comments under each thread. The posted threads and their comments can also be gathered on the brainstorming board as needed by the facilitator or recorder. Read more about brainstorming here.
From the studio, the board will be displayed by default, but you can use the icon given at the top right corner to collapse and expand the board as required.
