Monitoring Forums

Once Forums have been enabled for Courses and Learning Paths, Administrators will have a "Manage Discussion" button in the header of the Course and Learning Path. Account Owners and Administrators can delete learner posts; Team Leaders and Team Admins have the ability to delete posts in a course they created.

Note: See "Receiving Forum Notifications" section of this article for details on how to receive notifications for all forums. 

Using Forums as a Learner

Discussion forums may be set up to provide the learners an area to discuss topics in the course. You can access the forums by going to the course and clicking on the 'Discuss' tab. They are set up in chronological order with the most recent posts appearing at the top. A learner may choose to reply to a comment or post a new one; you may also show and hide comments. If you post anything you can delete it by clicking on the red X to the right of the comment.
