CourseForum provides a painless, straightforward and flexible solution for posting and sharing course materials, class discussions, and student collaboration. It can be used for lecture notes, Q&A, class discussions, research, student portfolios, projects, and more. The easy Web browser interface and quick installation lets you get started in minutes, and everyone can easily create, read, and contribute.
This version provides many changes to make getting started even easier: a new default course structure, hints on making use of pages, streamlined course creation, and more. Stylesheets and images can now be branded, and the unlicensed version is more functional. A variety of other new features and bugfixes are also included. This release contains a wide range of enhancements throughout the software. There is a new centralized page list and deletion options for administrators, extended authentication and privacy options for projects, several new site-wide customization options, new online support forums, installation enhancements, and several additional bug fixes and enhancements.
This version features two major new advancements, as well as a host of smaller updates. First, it offers a brand new look, and features a choice of several different themes for each forum, and allows custom themes to be easily created and added. Second, new capabilities were added, making it easier to integrate existing Web information directly into forums, both standalone Web pages and Web services.
