Participating in Discussion Forums

Online discussion forums allow participants to share ideas asynchronously and help generate a sense of community among the group.  We will use the discussion forums to:
  1. discuss a weekly topic related to teaching K-12 computer science,
  2. provide technical support on using the course and App Inventor, and
  3. share best practices and ideas in teaching computer science.
Forum Etiquette:
  • Stay on topic - use the miscellaneous category if you want to explore side topics
  • Avoid inflammatory language - we are all here to learn
  • Search the forum for answers to your question before posting in the help area
  • Try to write in complete sentences and avoid things like caps lock or typing like texting
Using the Forum:
Click the Forum link in the course navigation bar. To add a new post, click the "New Topic" button. To view posts in each category, click the links (such as Unit Discussions - Unit 1). Each time you post, make sure you select the category you are posting under to keep the forum organized.

Managing Forum Emails:

If you want to change how frequently you receive emails about postings to the Forum, click the Membership and email settings button on the Forum page (just below and to the right of New Topic).
