The forum is a great tool in order to communicate within a course. Instructors can share important information with their students via the forum Announcements/Ankündigungen
While the forum Announcements/Ankündigungen
is exclusively for instructors to share announcements, an additional forum can be helpful for students to communicate with each other during the online phases.

In order to set up a new forum, change to the Course Editing Mode
and add a new material or activity
