Forums in Moodle courses are a great way for teachers and students to communicate. The News Forum is where teachers can post announcements. Because students can't post or reply here, this forum is viewable by guests, so parents may be directed here, too. Other discussion forums are hidden from guests-- they are only for course members.
It is important to understand how forum subscriptions work. Subscriptions allow you to receive an e-mail when there is a new post to a forum. The short video and the written instructions below will help you better understand how this works.
