This tutorial will show you how to create a discussion forum. Discussion Forums are buckets or categories that house discussion topics. You must create a discussion forum before you can create a discussion topic within it. It is perfectly you do not need more than one Discussion Forum in your course.

Discussion Forums only organize discussion topics, students do not post or reply to discussion forums. Never set start or end dates on a discussion forum. This causes confusion to faculty and students.
