Communication and collaboration
The LMS offers a number of features to support communication and collaboration within subjects and communities. The various communication tools can help manage the sharing of information and promote interactions between members.
Each subject or community site has an Announcements page, which teaching staff can use to post information about subject activity.
Groups may be created within an LMS subject or community for the purposes of communication, collaborative work, or administration.
The Discussion Board is an asynchronous communication tool, allowing messages to be posted and read at any time.
Journals, blogs and wikis
Blogs, journals and wikis are tools for reflective writing, audio recordings, and collaborative workspaces that may be added to a subject or community.
Email can be sent to members of a subject or community via the Email tool.
