One idea I had for the forum, was to try and organize it a little better, instead of having a list of categories and then pages of threads to sort through, all with only a few comments each. This is most apparent in the “A Place to Introduce Yourself” category. Usually that’s dedicated as a single thread, with new users commenting in that one thread.
Now, I’m sure there’s a better way than this, but it’s just an example of how to organize and ‘condense’ some of those categories and sub-topics.

* It might be helpful to organize feedback by the person. A student can create his/her own thread/topic and post a new video in that same thread… versus making a new thread for every video.
