How to engage students in Forum discussion?

Digital strategies for Forum:

Forum can be an ideal place to provide explicit guidelines and encourage students to post their results of exploration and get feedback. The Forum activity allows students and teachers to exchange ideas by posting comments as part of a 'thread'. Files such as images and media maybe included in forum posts. The teacher can choose to grade and/or rate forum posts and it is also possible to give students permission to rate each other's posts.

You can use Forum to encourage the students to participate and interact with peers by awarding them a grade or releasing new content upon completion.
