I'm having trouble understanding how the course forums work. As I have been studying for a while I feel like I should know this and feel rather stupid! However, earlier in my studies, there wasn't the push to post the same way as there is now. (Does anyone else not like posting their activity answers and getting marked on them? I prefer to use the forums to ask questions, share information and support fellow students only!)
My issue is, when you do an activity in the course module and are told to post it online, do you put what you want to put as part of your assignment or something else? Many students post what appears to be parts of their assignments and I'm not sure if we are meant to or not.
And are students marks competitive? ie Is it like the School Certificate from the old days where people were scaled up and down depending on what all of the other students scored? (Can you tell I'm old? hehe)
I would love some feedback if anyone knows the answers to any of this!
