Why You Should Stop Using Forums

Instructional design

Open almost any online course and you'll find discussion forums in one unit after the other. As teachers, we've been led to believe that forums are an important element of an online course. Forums are supposed to promote interaction, engagement, and a sense of community. Not so though, at least in most of the courses I've seen!

Community, interaction, and engagement are important, but forums are not required to make that happen. In this session, I'll tell you why you should stop using forums and what you should be doing instead!
