Create a new forum
The Forum tool is organized by Forums, Topics, and Conversations.
- A Forum is a mandatory category or grouping for topics. There may be more than one Forum in the course or project site.
- Topics are required within Forums in order for site participants to be able to post, read, and reply to messages.
- Conversations are messages or threads of discussion posted within a Topic.
This article covers the process for create a new Forum.
Forums are useful for grouping several similar topics together, such as graded discussions, or group topics. They can also be used to specify the default topic settings for all topics within the forum. All new topics will inherit the forum settings by default.
Go to Forums.
Select the Forums tool from the Tool Menu.
