The bulletin board tool, called forum in Moodle, is the most important tool and central to all courses. It is very flexible and teachers can link lots of different contents into their forum messages. The forum therefore warrants a detailed description:
The Forum works like any bulletin board in that it allows users to post messages and to respond to each otherâ€™s contributions. Some Forums are used to provide information from the teacher to which you canâ€™t respond to in the Forum. Other forums are created as communication platforms between you and the other participants in specific group.
