10 + State of the Art Bulletin Board & Forum Themes

Bulletin board offers exciting sharing platform for ideas that are so useful in group settings like schools, colleges, universities, clubs & associations thereby opening up a better way of communicating.

We are delighted to share with you some of the best platforms in bulletin boards and forums for your organization or group.  Sky is the limit in creating different kinds of usage for these platforms. We have taken painstaking efforts in compiling this collection of themes for you, so that you try a new method to organize your ideas and thoughts for a more effective group participation in your community.

For example, in case of a school, discussion-centered topics maybe initiated by the teachers and have the students participate in the forum by encouraging them to post their views on a specific topic.  The teachers can easily moderate the comments and remove inappropriate comments.  Such exercises are so useful in preparing the students for a quiz or extempore competition as a lot of opinions and views from different members of the group would give a cross section of the views on that particular subject.

To illustrate, let us take a topic such as religious prejudices and conflicts in children of different faiths in a school.  Open mindedness and tolerance needs to be developed in children to cope with different cultural influences and faith.  How to achieve this?

To learn from each other and learning to live with each other is the key to understanding that there exists an underlying unity in diversity that we need to be aware of and attune ourselves to.

Just look at the diversity nature provides us!

Such topics for discussion in the forum will bring out a plethora of views from students of different faiths.  So, we could use technology to understand that differences exist in people in the way they perceive and process information!

Remember, in today’s world owning a gadget is not important.  What is important is how well you use the features of these electronic devices such as android phones, tablets and other handheld devices apart from the computers. A study shows that people use less than 40% of the features of the smartphones!

Academics-oriented activities that happen in schools or colleges frequently on various subjects for which the teachers have to prepare the students to take part in these activities.  What is better than initiating them into these kinds of bulletin boards, so that they learn to post what is in their minds without inhibitions?

These bulletin boards and forum software could be set up on your websites by embedding them or using WP Plugins . You can set up different types of user levels like administrators, moderators, user groups and set different colors for the users based on some criteria. These settings maybe altered by the site admin depending on the exigencies.

Different types of organizations belonging to different segments like workplaces, associations, universities/colleges/schools, real estate and apartment complex, professionals, nonprofits, interest groups and faith organizations, not to leave out bloggers and online communities could benefit from this WP plugin like Hootboard that is simple to embed in your sites.

Not only that, by creating different types of forum and discussions, exchange of ideas take place between the users which is highly conducive for developing a wider vision and perspective of the participants.
