#22 - Include a simple discussion forum in the Moodle Module Space
- Students may be reluctant to ask for help in person, or not willing to share ideas in a physical classroom.
- You may not have time to answer all questions in class.
- Use a simple forum in your Moodle Module Space to extend and open-up the discussion. Encourage students to help each other in the forum. Perhaps offer rewards to helpful students.

Enhancement goals addressed: Responsive teaching | Breaking down barriers between teacher and students
Tools and how to get support: Moodle Forum | Moodle Module Space
This is particularly effective if your aims is to keep things as simple and in-one-place as possible. You can control settings that limit file uploads, post length, and multimedia in posts. Students can be alerted to new posts by email, one at a time, or as a digest (e.g. weekly). Moodle provides some other types of forum for more specialist pedagogic purposes. For example, see the recipe for "create an online peer-learning cycle".
