The Forum has options to choose the topics the user is interested in, read comments and views of other people in the community and join live discussion events.

This project has provided me with immense learning and understanding about research, interactions with interviewees, research methods, data analysis, event management and structure etc. I have developed various skills during the 6 months of the research project. It helped me reflect on my shortcoming and prepare for the limitations that may occur at various stages of the design process.
