Canvas Transition: Note Moodle Forum Settings

All forum types automatically transition to the standard Canvas Discussion within the imported course file. If a forum is graded, the forum grade will transition correctly. However, most other settings are lost.

Noting Forum settings

  1. Go to the forum in Moodle.
  2. Find the Administration block:
    • Click Edit settings.
  3. Check the General settings and note if the Forum type is a Q&A forum. (These forums require a user to post before seeing replies).
  4. Expand the Common Modules settings to see if the forum is a group discussion.
    • Note if Group mode is used.
    • If so, note if Grouping is used.
  5. Scroll down and click Cancel.
