I want to be able to create a discussion forum on the Internt for educational purposes. My students are in Japan at a university, but on summer break. They will be returning to the US in September. I want to create a discussion form (not unlike the Macminute Reader Cafe) in which I can post topics and users, i.e., my students can reply to the topics and reply to other student responses. What software program is good for creating such a discussion forum on the Internet and what things do I need to consider? Membership can not be open, but only available to these students. Any ideas?<br><br>

Try Ikonboard... its fully configurable and very robust... has the features of a professional board, but is easy to use.... and best of all is free (except in commercial implimentations).<br><br>http://www.ikonboard.com<br><br>I had no idea how to install it, so once I got space to upload it to, I found someone on the ikonboard support forums who'd install it for me (very nice people over there) and once it was installed, it was a snap to configure.<br><br>For webspace that supports cgi, try NetFirms<br><br>http://www.netfirms.com<br><br>Hope all that helps.<br><br>
