Discussion Forums

The University has a central server for web discussion forums.All staff and students can create and run these, although student-run ones require a staff sponsor.

The School of Informatics runs several forums on this service related to teaching:

To view these you will need to log in with your EASE or EASE friend account. To post on a forum you need to join the Informatics Teaching-users group.

Warning: Owing to a fault in the University authorization pipeline, the forum server presents some students with the wrong login page and suggests they should register for a new account. Don't do this, it doesn't work! If you cannot log in with your EASE id and password (this is the one used for MyEd) then contact Information Services to have your account enabled for discussion forums. You can do this through the online self-service portal or by emailing IS.Helpline@ed.ac.uk.
