Forum Block (how to show recent news from any discussion)


Here’s a nifty little block that allows you to easily showcase recent posts from multiple discussion forums.  The block, like the standard “Latest News” block, pulls recent posts from each designated discussion forum for a quick and easy measure of activity in the course.  Easy to install (just unpackage the zip in the Blocks directory) and easy to configure (just add it and you’re off).


The block was created and shared by Tõnis Tartes at and is available for download now:
