What is a forum?

A forum is an employee/student/public meeting or assembly for open discussion. An Internet forum, or message board, is an online discussion site. It originated as the modern equivalent of a traditional bulletin board. From a technological standpoint, forums or boards are web applications managing user-generated content.

People participating in an Internet forum may cultivate social bonds and interest groups for a topic may form from the discussions. Forums prefer a premise of open and free discussion and often adopt de facto standards. Most common topics on forums include questions, comparisons, and polls of opinion as well as debates.

What are the benefits of forum and why should I use it?

Do you own a web site and want a way to give your visitors a way to share information and ideas? The first thing that might come to mind is a web forum. Forums are hot cake in cyberspace. Popular forums have millions of users. Forum revolutionizes the way we communicate. This is in theory the ideal setup from a technical standpoint. Technology seems to have made it easy to communicate ideas and thoughts across the web to any number of readers and users.

For example:

News, Notices, Polls, Debates, Alumni association, blogging, Job posting, Information to a group of people/parents/students about attendance, exam notice, practical, viva voce etc, distribution of assignments, notes, ppt and all these in specified categories.

More over it, if a user gets registered on your forum, you would be having his all contact details like mobile number, email, website and home address for future communication.

All visitors can directly connect to concerned departments. It allows busy person to ask a question, read information sitting on their places thus eliminating communication gap.
