How to encourage peer feedback in forums – add a ‘like’ button


In Moodle a ‘like’ button could be used in
forms to encourage students to give one another positive feedback.
People already use a ‘like’ button with popular social networking systems –
Facebook, Instagram, and WeChat, to name a few – to provide feedback on written text, videos, and pictures. I’ll show you how to set up a ‘like’
button in UMMoodle. I’ve already set up a forum. I need to change the settings. To edit the settings, click on the forum. On the administration tab, click ‘edit settings’ Scroll down. And, click on ratings I’ll set the aggregate type to maximum I’ll set the scale to ‘like scale’ and then click save and display There’s one more setting that needs to
be changed. Click on Permissions in the forum administration tab. Search for ‘rate’. We want to give to allow students to rate posts. After allowing students to rate forum posts and assigning a scale to this forum, students will be
able to ‘like’ each other’s posts
