Using Discussion Forums

August 8, 2016 - August 8, 2016

The Discussion Forum activities allows students and faculty to share information and benefit from each others' opinions and input.
Forums for discussion will be posted in Moodle - note the Forum icon - and may be offered in different formats.  Once you click on the discussion forum, it will appear with its discussion topics.  A forum may also appear like a blog with the chance to create posts and reply to others' comments.
