Oncourse: Forums

Frequently Asked Questions Q: “I created a forum in Oncourse but my students can’t see it. What’s going on?”

Let’s say you want your students to have a discussion outside of class and created a forum on Oncourse. Although you (the instructor) can view the forum, the student states that he or she is unable to see it.  What is going on?

ANSWER:

In order for your students to see an Oncourse forum, two steps are necessary.

  • 1. Create the forum (which is a container for topics)

      AND

  • 2. Create, at least, one Topic within the forum (this is where the discussion will take place)

Note: To see whether your students can see the forum and topic, it’s always a good practice to check the student view. This can be done by selecting “Enter student view” on the left toolbar.
