The in-course forums are a great place to collaborate, share ideas and support each other.

You can use the forums in your courses to start or join conversations with fellow learners and your course facilitator. You may be asked to contribute to a forum as part of an assignment. Follow these instructions to create a new post in a forum.

Step 1: Click on the course section with the forum you would like to contribute to. You’ll notice that forums have speech bubble icons.
