Along the way learners can receive additional support in their studies from the social forum accessed by all learners across the world. The forum has been developed to encourage the creation of self managed learning groups and encourage individuals to lead in particular areas of learning.
Students will be able to share their ideas and solutions and also any resources they have uncovered that can assist their fellow students. Individuals can request assistance from their peers on specific issues and act as the catalyst for discussion and analysis. It is important for students to participate and draw lessons from fellow students around the world to enhance online learning.
Each module has its own forum with topics covering many levels of support and further resources. Students will have the ability to control topics in the general area through a secure network with all posts monitored closely by OBS administrators.
