Forums: What are forums and how do I post a response/reply to them?

Quick Answer: Unlike submission assignments, Forums are conversations view-able by everyone in a course. The majority of your activities in a course will be in the form of Forums.  This is so you can share your thoughts and ideas with all of your peers and engage them in conversations about those ideas.  Interaction is key to successful Forums, so be sure to ask your peers thoughtful questions and build conversations!

Images: How do I add an image(s) to a forum post/reply or an assignment?

Quick Answer: When looking at any kind of Moodle submission box, whether for a forum post or a submission assignment, you will have a collection of white buttons at the top of the box to use to format your work.  You can use these buttons to add images, videos, and tables to take your responses to the next level.

To add an image you click the 10th button on the top row of the submission box.  If you want to upload an image from your computer, click the Find or Upload an Image button at the top of the pop-up window.  If you want to use an image URL copy and paste the URL in the Image URL field.  For more step by step instructions about uploading vs. using URLs please check out the video link below.
