You can perform tasks to manage both the discussion board itself and the content within forums and threads. For example, to keep students focused as the term progresses, edit forum settings or organize forums and threads to attract attention again. You can also forums to other locations, edit content, and delete unneeded forums or threads. You can also enable tagging and attach tags to help students locate important posts.
You can assign forum roles to limit access to a forum or to help with forum administration. For example, to help control the discussion board content that is presented to your students, you can assign a responsible user the role of moderator. To learn more, see Moderating Discussions.
