Forum types

These forum posts are also compulsorily sent to each participant by e-mail. Students cannot reply to the announcements or write new posts themselves. . 
  • Social forums: There are forums in which all course participants can write posts and answer others for discussions, explanations, questions as well as for sending files. It is even possible to upload files. You can create your own posts or even subscribe to the entire forum if you would like to be informed about updates from this forum via e-mail in the future.

When you click on the gear symbol, you have the option of subscribing to the forum to be informed about updates by email.  Forum subscribe
