About this guide
BSR-01 Building a Community explains one of the most powerful ways to improve student retention. If a student feels like they're part of a community, they're more likely to stay longer, get involved and recommend your lessons to other people (help spread word of mouth).
A powerful way to build a community is to use a forum or a Facebook Group. The guide BMK-20 talks about Facebook Groups and for some teachers they're the best choice. In this guide we'll look at forums, why you may prefer a forum over a Facebook Group, then look at how to set one up and run it effectively.
Forums aren't for everybody, so use this guide as a way to make sure it's the right option for you before you invest your time in creating one.
