Activities: Advanced Forum
Advanced forum are designed to increase engagement and provide a modern alternative to standard Moodle forums.
Advanced forum reduce complexity and work like the modern messaging systems students use every day on the web and their mobile devices.
Unlike standard forums advanced forums are responsive, so users can read and post from their mobile or tablet. Advanced forums have been specifically designed to improve the usability and accessibility of Moodle forums.
Posting and replying are all done via ajax to save page loads, take less clicks and increase engagement, while maintaining the user's context in a discussion thread.
Advanced forums contain a number of additional features including the ability to see who has engaged in a discussion before you open it, a setting to show recent forum posts on the course page, subscribing to individual threads, private replies and an option to allow anonymous posting, post bookmarking, along with all the features standard moodle forums have.
Advanced forums are design by Mooodlerooms in partnership with The University of Montana.
