Forums allow schools to provide highly-moderated, safe and friendly online environments in which students can interact with each other and their teachers. Forums are typically used for assessments, event planning or general discussions.
See: Forum Permissions
Forums can be created and managed through the 'Teaching workspace' under 'Forums'. Teachers can also create Forums for their assessments through their programmes under 'Overview of assessments'.
Participants can be banned from a forum through the Forums page. Banning a participant will prevent them from viewing the forum.
When banning a participant, a reason can be entered. In addition, a pastoral care entry can be created (for students only). All comments (messages) posted by the participant can be deleted.
Customising the Forum Page Title and Message
The Application Setting 'Forum message' can be used to set a message to display at the top of the Forum page in SEQTA Learn, SEQTA Engage and SEQTA Teach.
Disabling Forum Notifications
Forum notifications can be disabled on a forum by forum basis by selecting the forum and clicking the 'Suppress Notifications' button.
Student and Staff Photos in Forums
Any staff or student photos stored in SEQTA will automatically display in the Forums next to the student's messages.
