Clear and easy to use forum discussions are an integral part of good course design.

Discussion “Topics” AKA “Threads” vs Discussion “Posts”

  • Use “Standard” forums when you want to have multiple topics of discussion. Often users create new “Topics” when they meant to create a new post in an existing discussion. This usually causes confusion.
  • Use “A single simple discussion” when you want to talk about one subject only within a forum.
  • Use as few forums as possible to reduce confusion about where to post.
