I'm creating some teaching training documents recently and just wondering whether folks here could share some "best practices" of using different types of Moodle forums. We all know that Moodle has 4 types of forums:
- "A standard forum for general use"
- "A single simple discussion"
- "Each person posts one discussion"
- "Question and Answer forum"
For example, for "ice-breaker" type of "introduce yourself" type of activity, I found that using "Each person posts one discussion" would probably be most effective (each student "owns" their own "thread" and other students could comment it, etc.). Also for "larger" discussions, "a standard forum for general use" probably would be better. How about other types of forums? Could anyone please post your stories of using different types of forums to achieve your "instructional goals" or "learning objectives"? Thanks a bunch!!
