Quote from: Kindred on May 14, 2020, 12:47:39 PMare you looking to actually have online conversations with the students in the forum?If not, then a forum software is probably the wrong functionality.If you are just looking to provide them with access to videos and documents... then I would actually suggest WordPress with a member management and access control add-on.
