Use Discourse for future School of Open courses!


Continuing the discussion from Should we have a separate Discourse for course discussions?:


Hey @Jane so glad you’re digging it. Would you please start making a list of ways you use it/best practices? I’m working on a guide to using discourse…


Yes! A guide to using Discourse would be great. I was thinking we might need to write up something rough and ready for our Why Open participants, just with a few basics on how it works.

But maybe there’s something already existing that would provide new users just the basics? I looked on the website and couldn’t find any such thing.


I believe Jeff Atwood’s approach is to use the discourse community to collaboratively build the guide. Would love to do this in September if possible. Please make notes here!
