Forums in Moodle - Student support
Different types of forums
There are often several forums in a Moodle course and these are used for communication between those involved in the course.
Frequently recurring forum is
- News forum
Here course teachers announces important news and more. Only teachers write here.
- Questions to the course teachers
Here you can ask questions you have about the course, as long as the question is not of a personal nature. Both questions and answers are seen by everyone involved in the course, and both teachers and students can write and reply to messages.
- Forum: Group
Here each group has its own, separate "room" for discussion. Can also be seen by the teachers of the course.
When there are posts you have not read in a forum this is signaled on the course main page when you are logged in.
