Creating New Discussion Topics

FirefoxFirefox is the best browser to use when accessing Moodle 2.6. Free download: http://www.mozilla.org

Whether having students pre-discuss a reading for your next class or participate in discussions as part of a fully online course, asynchronous forums provide opportunities for extended reflection on topics and engagement in community building exchanges.

Discussion Forums have five sub-types:

Standard Forum for General Use - All participants in the course can create an unlimited number of discussion topic threads.

Standard forum displayed in a Blog-type format - All participants can create an unlimited number of discussion topic threads.

Q & A forum - Students must submit a reply to the initial discussion post before viewing the replies of other participants.

Each person posts one discussion - Every participant in the course is allowed to create only one discussion topic thread. Replying to other posts is unlimited.

A single simple post - The text in the Forum Introduction becomes the initial discussion topic post. Replies are unlimited, but no additional discussion topics can be added.
