Getting started on the forums:
- Why not introduce yourself?
- Click around – one of the best ways to learn online
- Create a new topic: ask a question; muse about online community or online learning; share a study tip
These forums exist for a few big reasons:
- to enable Saylor Academy students and staff to learn with and learn about one another;
- to host discussion and short composition assignments for some of our courses;
- to provide a place for public, collaborative exchange;
- to explore course topics in greater depth.
Why the name “discourse”?
Discourse is the name of the open source software that powers these forums. We also agree with the spirit of the name; to our ears, discourse mean smart and friendly conversation, free exchange, respectful engagement, and learning-by-talking.
