Classroom message board
Does a message board/forum specifically designated to the classroom already exist? I am using Duolingo as an extra resource for my adult students and I think it would be a great addition to have a place where we can chat together through Duolingo about the assignments without having to post the messages on a public forum. I feel that my students could motivate each other and compete.
As suggested by jolynnedougherty , could you relocate this discussion in the “Educators" forum? You'll be more likely to have useful answers there (and it belongs there ;) ). Thx!
To relocate it (\/!\ please, don’t create a new one \/!\), edit your original post then select said forum in the drop-down menu on top-left of the edition area (see here for details).
Have a look to this short guide to help you knowing where to post your (future) discussions on Duolingo’s forums.
As mentioned by jolynnedougherty, there exist a message board/forum specifically designated to (ask questions about or make suggestions for) Classrooms/Duo Schools.
But a Duo classrooms currently does not include a "private" forum for the students and the educator to exchange: it has to be done outside of Duolingo for the moment, Duo forums aren't meant for private discussions.
