Template:Forums The News forum is a special forum for general announcements. A course may only have one News forum unless it has been imported from another system which supports more than one news forum, e.g. BlackBoard.

This forum is automatically created for each course and for the front page of the Moodle site. By default, it is placed in the top of the center section and only teachers and administrators may add posts or reply to posts.
