Participate discussions (text decription)
Entry points to discussions are one in top-menu, and another one is the “Participate in discussions” section on the home page. There are 5 forums at VATL. All discussions go within of these 5 forums. Let's choose one, for example, “Active learning…” and see how the interface looks like.
We see a description of the forum and a list of topics that were created within the forum.
Non authorized (An unauthorized) user can read the forum description and watch the participant. However, participation in the discussion for an unauthorized user is not available. Let us log in and see the interface for authorized users.
Additionally we see a button “Add new discussion topic”. At the list of the discussion topic are 2 items. Let us add new discussion topic, write Subject and Message of discussion. We can add tag. And click the button “Post to forum”.
