Cite the sources you use for your discussion board posts either at the end of each item or use an in-text citation there and make a bibliography at the end of your post. This is a good habit to develop. Your boss will thank you someday for including the validating sources with your information. You want your reader to be able to find the sources and read more about it. For these Discussion Boards, practice citing your sources in APA format. If it is an online source, also add the URL and the date retrieved. My example is for the APA guide page you can use to build citations:
Paiz, J.M., Angeli, E., Wagner, J., Lawrick, E., Moore, K.,
Anderson, M., …Keck, R. (2015, March 27). Reference

This is my own best guess for how to cite this particular web page, but the example as well as the page itself, should help you to sort out how to set up your citations. Note that the APA format for references is a hanging indent (the first line is at the left margin, while the remaining lines are indented. Sort of a reverse paragraph indention where only the first line is indented. Blackboard is not very friendly for hanging indentions. You will probably have to add a hard return(enter) at the end of what you want to be the first line, then use the indent icon to move the next line over. You’ll have to repeat the hard return and Indent for each additional line. Annoying, but it works. The only time you can use just a web address for a source is when you are referring to the entire site. There is typically at least a title for you to use in your citation.
8. Remember to constructively comment/provide peer-review on at least one classmate’s post in 50+ words. What further questions do you have? How might you further develop your classmate’s post? Looking for constructive comments that add to the analysis.
