Discussion forums have been a staple of the internet since before many of us were even using the internet. If you don't know, forums are contained communities of people with a common interest. There are forums for every topic and interest you can think of. Chances are, you've already visited--and possibly participated in--forums for your favorite hobby, or to ask for travel advice, or any number of reasons you might want to visit a forum.
You go to a forum because you want information, or want to share information, with people who have the same passions and interests as you. Speaking for myself, I know I'm more apt to go to a forum to find answers and information than some formal sources. If that sounds strange, aren't you more apt to ask your colleagues questions before you ask the teacher or your boss? It might seem like all fun, but this can be invaluable in the workplace!
Back in July, we launched the Training Forums in the Collaborate tab of Amadeus e-University. There you'll find:
- Open Forums for 25 different topics that are available 24/7
- Scheduled Forums with our instructors that are open for a limited time. The discussions are still available to read indefinitely after the forum is closed. [read more]
