Topic Progress:

Forums are an optional add-on to your course. Taking advantage of this feature will enable and encourage social discussion among learners, ultimately reducing the number of support requests you will receive.

Different people learn in different ways, and some retain more information through interaction with peers on the same course than through the course content itself.

Forums can simply be areas in which users can ask the advice or opinions of fellow learners, or you can take a more directed approach as a forum facilitator to prompt specific discussion topics. Either way, the ability to connect with other people through a forum can breathe life into a course and make learners feel much more invested.
