Golden Rules of Forum Posting

LearnDash

Nearly every online course or training program today has some way for students to comment on the material, most often in the form of forums. Online forums have been around for a long time now, so most people are generally aware of the proper etiquette when interacting on them. It seems like there are always some individuals who lack the general understanding of forum protocol.

‘Discussion forum': don’t let the name of the tool put you on the wrong learning design track

The eLearning Nomad

They’re usually called discussion forums or discussion boards and are the most commonly used tool for answering questions as well as for any conversations we have in an online learning space.

The Good and Bad of Support Forums

LearnDash

This decision often comes down to one of two choices: forums or a help desk – but which is best? As we got more customers they started requesting that we implement forums. We were reluctant at first to implement a forum. But we went ahead and added forums as another option for support due to the demand, and looking back I am so glad that we did. WordPress

The dawn of a new generation

E-Learning Provocateur

OK, a missing link in this solution is a social forum. If an operator can’t find what they need, a social forum enables them to ask their crowd of peers. Also, by keeping tabs on the discussions in the forum, the L&D professional can identify gaps in the solution, and review the content that is evidently unclear or difficult to find.

Or a discussion forum that supports an inhouse training program: 1% of the participants will fall short of the critical mass that is required to develop a rich, diverse and meaningful discussion. As learning in the workplace becomes increasingly informal, the motivation of employees to drive their own development becomes increasingly pivotal to their performance. You see, we love learning.
