The Discussion Board (DB) is part of the core of online learning. Classroom discussion in an online environment requires the active participation of students and the instructor to create robust interaction and dialogue. Every student is expected to create an original response to the open-ended DB question as well as engage in dialogue by responding to posts created by others throughout the week.

According to the discussion board scenario, my company ordered $150,000 worth of supplies on November 15th and received them on Nov 30th.
