About Moodle Group Forum Features

Some courses utilize group forums. These group forums allow each group to have its own separate discussion space within the forum. In the group forum, students must select the group in which they intend to post.

In the example course below, the group mode is set to separate groups, meaning students can post to "All participants" of the course, or by selecting from the group list, they can post within their team's private forum space.

Select the Group Before Posting to the Forum

A. Default

There are three separate groups set up in this example course. Users are given the option of adding a new discussion topic to "All participants" or for their selected group. Remember that "All participants" is the default selection.

B. In Separate Groups

To start or reply to discussions in a separate group, use the drop-down menu on top of the forum page. To ensure that you are posting in the correct group, check that you see:
  • Your preferred group name on the menu, or
  • Your preferred group name is the only group listed "Group" column on the list of discussions.
