Avoid Losing Your Work

A Note About Server “Time Out”

A few participants have become frustrated after composing a thoughtful, comprehensive discussion board posting only to be “timed out” by the server. When that happens, the work is lost.

The best way to avoid losing your valuable work is to compose your responses, replies in a Word document and then copy and paste it into the discussion board. For short responses and replies, this is not necessary, but to be sure that you will never lose your work, we recommend composing it in a Word document, so that being “timed out” will not cause you problems.
