How to setup and use the student forum

The student forum is an integral part of your peer-to-peer learning experience and you can choose how and when you receive notifications for posts. You can also search the forum from your myHETI Dashboard.

Make sure you set up your forum notification preferences by following the instructions in the step-by-step guide below.

Setting up the forum

Select the arrow next to your picture in the top right of myHETI.

Select Forum preferences

Email digest

There are three Email digest types:

1) Complete (daily email with full posts)
2) No digest (single email per forum post)
3) Subjects (daily email with subjects only)

Note: you can chose a different setting for each forum if you like.

Forum auto-subscribeThis setting allows you to decide if you want email copies of posts that are added to forums. If you set this to subscribe, the system will automatically email you copies of new posts in discussions that you post in, unless you manually override it when posting.

Forum tracking

Enabling forum tracking means highlighting the posts you have not read yet, which should improve your forum navigation.

To create a forum post, go to the home page of the course you want to discuss and click on the Student Forum link beneath the Book menus, then click on the Add a New Discussion Topic button and draft your post.
