I would like to use Moodle to meet up with other international students and was wondering if there was any 'activity ' where I could Moderate the written conversation. So that young students dont give out phone numbers,Facebook information etc etc
I assume you want to check students' posts before they are published. I don't think you can do this with a Forum activity, but you might be able to use the Database activity. Check out these settings:
You can try setting approval required to "yes" and allow comments as well. I imagine you would then have to approve an entry before it is published, and because comments are enabled students can comment on each others' posts.
