8635302e 301There are several forum types to choose from, such as a standard forum where anyone can start a new discussion at any time; a forum where each student can post exactly one discussion; or a question and answer forum where students must first post before being able to view other students\' posts. A teacher can allow files to be attached to forum posts. Attached images are displayed in the forum post.
2e6b68f4 302
8635302e 303Participants can subscribe to a forum to receive notifications of new forum posts. A teacher can set the subscription mode to optional, forced or auto, or prevent subscription completely. If required, students can be blocked from posting more than a given number of posts in a given time period; this can prevent individuals from dominating discussions.
2e6b68f4 304
8635302e 305Forum posts can be rated by teachers or students (peer evaluation). Ratings can be aggregated to form a final grade which is recorded in the gradebook.
307Forums have many uses, such as
309* A social space for students to get to know each other
310* For course announcements (using a news forum with forced subscription)
311* For discussing course content or reading materials
2e6b68f4 312* For continuing online an issue raised previously in a face-to-face session
313* For teacher-only discussions (using a hidden forum)
314* A help centre where tutors and students can give advice
315* A one-on-one support area for private student-teacher communications (using a forum with separate groups and with one student per group)
316* For extension activities, for example ‘brain teasers’ for students to ponder and suggest solutions to';
