Posting of messages on the platform

Dear Students,

Just asimple note to allow the best use of the platform :

  • When you post a message on forum, especially if it’s a long message which may be part of your work, your session can be timed out when you click the send button. This will cause you to lose your input and you will have to type them again.
  • Therefore a good option is to type in a word processor and then copy and paste it in theenvironment. However, the problem when you copy paste from Word, is that extratags and formatting as well as unwanted characters appear.
  • The guideline is therefore to use NOTEPAD when typing your inputs and then copy and paste from NOTEPAD to the elearning environment. This will allow a clean post to be made on the forum.
  • The same guideline applies to when you use the blog
