I have not really experience forums when I was a high school student. It is because the classes were almost to seek using practical skills in my high school. Although, art competitions have become held on the Internet since due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We had to hand in our works to the art competition with their pictures. I felt sad that our works were rated to be seen only with pictures. I had not painted with all my might because even if I drew it in detail, the judges can’t look the effort. There is a limit to the image quality of the pictures. It is not good for education. If you are acquired better skills for students, it is better to make an opportunity that they can watch works directly.
However, I believe they are good tools for learning. I’m starting to use forums for learning from when it is started the classes in the college. It is efficient to learn something. It is valid what I can learn anytime I want or I can review it if I can’t understand the contents.
Therefore, I believe it is really efficient for learning but it is not good to evaluate our works. It is important to consider the purposes.
