How does OLAT support me to interact with my users?

OLAT provides interaction possibilities for all participants and in various ways. As standard for a LMS there is a Wiki, which is the resource where users can create and edit content in a collaborative way to reach a common goal. If you want to establish an online conversation there is the Forum, which is a discussion board. Or more specifically the File dialog, for a debate on a particular document. And the Blog adds an information stream to your courses which can be edited in collaboration with all or only certain participants.

Besides content management it is important to organize for example a joint schedule with a Calendar, which could be course or group specific, and implemented in each users private calendar. Furthermore, all participants can make use of the Chat function to interact in real-time conversations.
