This is an exploratory test of a new feature, so please feel free to try anything you like and not just the test steps!
This test requires 2 teacher accounts, 2 student accounts and 5 forum activities, one of each type (standard forum, standard forum in blog-like format, each person posts one discussion, Q and A forum, single simple discussion) containing posts from the two students.
