8 Module 2 – Introduction

discussion forum is a versatile activity within Moodle. Forums assist faculty in facilitating instructor-to-student interaction as well as peer-to-peer interaction among students. Within Moodle, forums can be used to review and discuss broad course content, focus on specific questions about content, collaborate, and/or share resources. Some faculty decide to use forums as a resource thread for discussion among group members working on a project; whereas, other faculty may use a blog-like format to offer a pseudo-social network within the course. Forums are flexible and can generally accommodate project ideas that may seem difficult to adapt to an online learning environment.
