There is a news forum (for one way announcements to students), with a forum outline provided in the news forum description, with the setting to show this on the course homepage selected, so students can understand how this discussion forum is to be used.

Student Active Participation


Quality Assurance

Image Removed

 See the screenshot of a Moodle course homepage below, for examples of anonymous feedback points. The suggestion box uses the Advanced forum with anonymous posting enabled, so other students can see the suggestions that are posted. The Course Feedback Questionnaire uses a Questionnaire, so students can confidentially provide anonymous feedback and save and resume their answers. A third option, the feedback activity, would allow students full anonymity, as (unlike the Questionnaire) nothing is recorded in the Moodle logs when they respond (however it doesn't support save and resume).
