The Expert's Corner
The Expert's Corner is the virtual space to exchange experiences and knowledge in the platform. These forums are moderated by the platform experts (lecturers and guest lecturers) and users can decide to subscribe/unsubscribe from them. Favorite discussion rooms can also be starred.
Users can control the forum notifications via the option Preferences on the user menu on the top right corner next to the user image.
Add a new Discussion Topic
To add a new discussion topic fill in the question or topic to discuss under Message, click on the link Advanced and check the box Discussion subscription if not already checked. In this way you ensure that all subscribers receive the notifications when someone replies to the post.
You may also add Attachments, configure the display period and define Tags if you want the content of this post to be found in the tag searches.
If you have a Forum Expert role (only for selected lecturers and business partners) you will also see under Advanced two additional checkboxes to configure the post:
- Pinned: if you want the post to remain always visible at the top.
- Send forum post with no editing-time delay: so that subscribers can recieve the corresponding notification as soon as possible.
