“I would like for the students to post their interpretations, journals and comments and for me to be able to give my individual feedback without the whole class knowing. As of now, I use Forum, but all students are able to see the content there.”
To create a private and individualized document and feedback exchange with students you can try the Forum + Separate Groups Approach described here.
Discussion Forum postings may be blocked due to Group Settings in your iLearn course.
According to Moodle.org, permanently deleting the news forum takes two steps:
1) Go to course settings and set the number of ‘news items to show’ to 0; Save this setting.
2) Return to the course home page and delete the news forum.
