Can I create a forum in Moodle where my students reply and participate in the discussion anonymously?

***Important: This feature is only available in the Advanced forum Figure: advanced forum icon and not in the "standard" Moodle Forum Figure: forum icon.

Yes, as an instructor you may enable anonymous replies for all participants in a discussion forum when you establish the settings of an Advanced Forum activity. If enabled, then the author's name for each post will be suppressed when viewing the forum.



Anonymous Discussion Forums

  1. When creating or editing the forum, the selection is available in Post options section of the settings.
  2. Select the check box for Allow anonymous posting.

  3. Continue to edit settings as needed and choose the apppropriate Save/Cancel action.
