The forum activity allows students and Tutors to exchange ideas by posting comments as part of a ‘thread’. Files such as images and media maybe included in forum posts. The teacher can choose to rate forum posts and it is also possible to give students permission to rate each other’s posts.
More information on how to use the Forum activity on Moodle can be discovered in the official Moodle documentation website.
We have a unique type of forum which is created from the faulty course template which has the following features.
- The content that you put in this forum will reflect to the announcement block as the latest news.
- Students are subscribed to this forum automatically.
