This discussion forum is for students taking part in the Dynamic Designs Challenge, to discuss their ideas with each other, to ask their expert questions and to submit their Stage One poster entries.
If you have been selected for the Dynamic Designs Challenge by the British Council, you will have been sent a username and password which will allow you to post messages to your team's "Private Area" on the site.
Use the "Topics" button (top left) to return to the Discussion Forum homepage where you will find links to all areas including you team's Private Area and the Public Discussion Area.
If you have not used a discussion forum (or board) before you might like to have a look at "Getting started" which can be reached from the "Help" button before you try posting a message.
GUIDANCE ON POSTING MESSAGES DO a search of this board before posting any questions using the "Search" button. There might already be an answer posted. DO check back in a day or two to see if your question has been answered. DO NOT post your userame, password, phone number or any other personal information for security reasons. DO NOT use profanity or demean your fellow users. DO NOT post a message in the "Practice Area for Posting Messages", unless you are actually doing a test. DO NOT post test messages in threads (or areas) created for particular topics.
HOW TO USE AREAS OF THIS BOARD EFFECTIVELY 1. SEARCH FOR YOUR ANSWER Before posting a question, check if anyone else has already asked the question and had it answered. To do this, click on the "Search" button on the left. Type in a few words from your query into the following box. To get a more useful search, precede important words with a + to require that the word is there.
2. IF YOUR QUESTION HAS NOT BEEN ASKED If your question has not already been asked, either post a new message in an existing area on the topic you are interested in, or use a "Start New Thread" button to create a new topic area and then post your message in there.
3. IF YOU WANT MORE INFORMATION ON A TOPIC If an area has already been started on the subject you are interested in, but the advice there does not help you with your problem, you are welcome to post another message in that area to ask for more information. Do not start a new area (or thread) if there is already an area on the subject of your problem.
