If you sign up, you can join the MoocLab Community and interact with other members through the discussion forums. The Forums are discussion areas focused around different subjects where you can ask questions, share your experiences, and discuss topics of common interest via a series of text-based messages. Each forum will have a number of “threads” discussing different topics, and as a member you will be able to join in the discussion by replying to threads, or start your own thread. The forums are a great place to find things out based on other people’s real experiences. For answers to questions on how to use the forums, go to our How To Guide page.
