Forum types

There are several different types of forum to choose from:

A single simple discussion - a single topic, all on one page. Useful for short, focused discussions.

Standard forum for general use - an open forum where anyone can start a new topic at any time. This is the best general-purpose forum.

Each person posts one discussion - Each person can post exactly one new discussion topic (everyone can reply to them though). This is useful when you want each student to discuss their reflections on the week's topic, and other students responses to these reflections.

Q & A Forum - Requires students to post their perspectives before viewing other student postings. After the initial posting, students can view and respond to other postings. This feature allows equal initial posting opportunity among all students, thus encouraging original and independent thinking.
