Setting up a moderated forum means that the instructor needs to approve every message before its posted in the Forums.

To create a moderated forum or topic:

  1. Navigate to the Forums tool in your Isidore course site.
  2. Either click on New Forum or New Topic to create a new forum or topic, or click on Forum Settings or Topic Settings to modify an existing forum or topic.
  3. Under the "Forum Posting" heading, select "Moderate topics in forum" or under the "Topic Posting" heading, check the box next to "Moderate Topic".
  4. Click on Save.

How to Moderate Messages

To moderate messages in Forums:

  1. Navigate to the Forums tool in your Isidore course site.
  2. At the top, click Pending Messages. The number in the parentheses is the number of messages awaiting your attention.
  3. Check the box next to the message you'd like to moderate, and click Deny or Approve. You'll be returned to the Pending Messages page to continue moderation.
    Note: You cannot add a comment from the Pending Messages page if you deny a message. To include a comment, click the subject of the message before denying the message. You'll then have the opportunity to add a comment. If you are expecting attachments and need to read before you approve or deny the message, open the message to read before doing so.

Note: Students will not be able to see messages until you've approved them.
