Answer

A News forum is a special type of forum that is automatically created with a new course. This is specifically where an instructor will make announcements to students. This forum automatically subscribes all users within that course and sends email notices. This is an essential and the primary way online instructors communicate with their students.


For more details on emailing, see “Emailing Students.
